About the venue

Built by the Normans in the 11th Century, Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery is home to collections of fine art, archaeology, and natural history, as well as touring exhibitions from national galleries.

Getting There

By car: The closest car park is situated in the Castle Quarter; levels K-N offer the shortest route to Norwich Castle. Apologies, there is currently no Blue Badge parking outside the museum while building work is being carried out. There is no other car parking available at Norwich Castle.

Train: The castle is a 10 minute walk from Norwich Train Station

Bus: There are a large number of buses which stop just outside the Castle on Castle Meadow


Step free access is via the external lift in Castle Gardens. If you prefer not to use a lift, there is alternative step free access to the Castle via Farmers’ Avenue. Visitors can bring an Essential Companion into Norwich Castle free of charge. There are large print labels in many galleries, and a magnifying glass can be provided from the main entrance desk.

    Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

    This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

    Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
