With a thousand years of history to unpack and carefully curated artistic collections to explore, Nottingham Castle is a fantastic place to learn.
Nothing brings learning to life like standing in the footsteps of real history – and getting hands-on and creative. From toddlers to school groups and life-long learners, we believe that learning is for everyone.

‘The experience was sensational and our children loved every moment! Even the staff, who had not visited the castle since the renovations, all left desperate to take their own families. The team who were our guides were kind, considerate and knowledgeable, they too deserve high praise for making our day so memorable.
I felt it important to send a message of thanks, as throughout my long career as a teacher, this was one of the most enjoyable, exciting and beneficial trips the children have experienced. Thank you and well done!’ – Assistant Headteacher, Stanhope Primary School
‘I would like to say a huge thank you from Arnold Hill Spencer Academy for the fantastic provision you gave our students who attended on Thursday. The staff have been full of praise for how organised and engaging the day was. You went above and beyond what we were expecting, especially at such a reasonable price. It was a wonderful opportunity for our students to learn about the history of the site and enrich their learning in history. The students have all come back full of enthusiasm. We look forward to attending again in May.’ – Principal, Arnold Hill Spencer Academy
