    Norwich Castle
    One of the City's most famous landmarks, Norwich Castle was built by the Normans as a Royal Palace 900 years ago. Used as a prison from the 14th century, the Castle became a museum in 1894.

    Now the County's principal museum, the Castle is packed with treasures to inspire and intrigue visitors of all ages. Its outstanding collections of fine art, archaeology and natural history are of national importance and include the best collections anywhere of paintings by the Norwich School of Artists and the world's largest collection of ceramic teapots.

    Norwich Castle has one of Britain’s most important collections of Anglo-Saxon treasures. Our new Anglo-Saxon and Viking Gallery tells the story of life in East Anglia after the collapse of the Roman Empire.

    Find out about East Anglia’s very own Queen Boudicca and her Iceni tribe. Admire breathtaking displays of Iceni treasure and 2000 year old gold torcs or neck bands. Climb aboard a re-creation of an Iceni chariot and see what it was like to ride into battle against the Romans.

    The Egyptian Gallery

    Step even further back in time and experience the atmosphere of an Egyptian tomb with its ancient mummies. Find out more before you visit, by clicking on the link to view our themed online exhibition and collections database.

    Admission Charges

    Norwich Castle is divided into zones. You can choose to buy tickets to visit all galleries or you can visit the Castle & History zone or the Art & Exhibitions zone. Admission to the shop, cafe and Rotunda information desk is free.
