A must see place if you're in Norfolk! This place has tons of history, including some you wouldn't expect in the UK. The place even has a fun children's interaction area

Thanks for your question Leigh. We would usually recommend at least 2-3 hours to see everything at Norwich Castle and any tours on top of that. Dungeon tours are an extra that are bookable for a small fee on top of admission... More
