Nottingham Castle has recently benefited from a £30 million renovation, and we are proud to offer a world-class visitor experience with a comprehensive range of facilities available for your visit.
From explorations of our underground cave network to daily art highlights, we offer guided tours designed to pique the interests of all visitors. Tours can be booked in advance, or you can drop in on the day – but please note that spaces are limited.
Located in the brand-new Visitor Centre, the Castle Shop stocks a carefully selected range of quality products and gifts. From local food and drink to artisan gifts and souvenirs, the shop’s stock has been carefully sourced from some of the best makers and manufacturers in Nottingham, the UK and beyond.
Visitors to Nottingham Castle do not need an admission ticket to visit the shop.
There’s a lot to do at Nottingham Castle, and our cafés will keep you refreshed and energised during your visit. We have two cafés – the Terrace Café, which is located in the Ducal Palace, and the Coffee Shop which is waiting inside our brand-new Visitor Centre. Both serve quality hot drinks, delicious cakes, and a selection of tasty light lunches.
Stay connected with free Wi-Fi provided in the Visitor Centre and Ducal Palace.
We want to ensure that a visit to Nottingham Castle is accessible for everyone. There is a Changing Places toilet in the Gatehouse next to the Visitor Centre. We also have two accessible toilets in the Visitor Centre, and one on the ground floor of the Ducal Palace near the restaurant.
