Nottingham Castle is a magnificent 17th century ducal mansion built on the site of an original Medieval Castle, with spectacular views across the city. The Castle has a turbulent past, linked to kings and conquerors and still has a maze of original caves hidden beneath its imposing walls. You can take a tour of these caves and discover King David’s dungeon, the Duke of Newcastle’s Wine Cellar and Mortimer’s Hole. Nottingham Castle today is a vibrant museum, with galleries that bring the best regional, national and international artists’ work to the City. Delicious refreshments are available in the Café.
