A unique historic city centre venue

The city’s iconic landmark, Norwich Castle was built by

Now a museum and art gallery and home to some of

the county’s most outstanding collections of fine art,

archaeology, natural history and costume and textiles,

Norwich Castle provides a unique city centre venue for

corporate and private occasions.

Norwich Castle is able to accommodate a versatile range

of events during the day or evening, including receptions,

presentations, conferences, meetings, training days,

weddings, seminars and social occasions.

Why not make your time with us even more special.

Treat your guests to an exhibition private view, take the

opportunity to explore the Keep and museum galleries,

book a behind the scenes tour or a visit to the dungeons

or battlements, handle museum objects or be entertained

by costumed characters.
