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.

  • Festival Futures – Arts make life better

    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 arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

    This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

    2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.

    Make a Festival Futures donation to Norfolk & Norwich Festival.
