REOPENING DATE ANNOUNCED: Nottingham Castle will be reopening its doors on Monday 21st June 2021, following a £29.8m transformation. Please visit the Nottingham Castle website for updates and information.


Opening in 2021, Nottingham Castle promises the best day out for all, from history seekers to families wanting an action-packed adventure. Discover more and plan your perfect visit today.

Set in the heart of the city, visit this must-see heritage attraction and step into the epic retelling of the story of Robin Hood and his Merrie Band.

Situated on the historic “Castle Rock", walk in the footsteps of a legend in the immersive Robin Hood Gallery, and discover the stories of this rebellious city! If you dare, journey into the depths of the Castle and discover the mysterious underground cave network, in a more accessible and revealing way than ever before.

Housed in the magnificent Ducal Palace, you will be able to visit the brand-new galleries, and learn about the creative and industrial history of Nottingham through a showcase of exquisite works of art. From lacemaking to intricate Nottingham alabaster, there’s plenty to impress.

Don’t miss the new temporary exhibition gallery, which will welcome prestigious touring exhibitions throughout the year.

The castle will also boast an excellent food offering, including from the brand-new Terrace Café, offering food made from locally-sourced ingredients that can be enjoyed with a view over the city. Their Coffee Shop, located in the newly-constructed Visitor Centre, will provide healthy, affordable food with speedy service.

Please note: Due to a fantastic £29.8m Heritage Lottery Funded grant, Nottingham Castle will be closed from 1 July 2018 until early 2021. Please visit their website for updates and information.
