Beautiful castle and grounds, and lovely museum with a fascinating collection. The Ghosts of Nottingham tour was amazing journey into England’s past- I was reeling with the depth of knowledge that Mark, our tour guide, had to offer (and enjoyed his sense of humour, keeping us informed, engaged and interested the entire time). Definitely worth a visit.

Visited the castle today and went on one of the cave tours, we got more value than what we expected. Not only did we go in to the caves but also a dungeon, and were educated on the history of the castle and caves by our very informative tour guide, Mark. Would be nice if the tours continued when the castle reopens.

Came to the castle today whilst children at school. Went on the cave tour led by Mark. Small group which was great. Mark gave us lots of interesting information, was engaging and humorous. Brilliant to see some of Nottinghams vast network of caves and hear some of the Gruesome history behind them. Only downside is that the tours are ending as the castle is closing shortly. We won't be able to bring the children. Thanks for a great tour Mark.

Lots to see and learn here. History buff or not it's a great venue, hence why the annual October beer festival is also hostedhere.

Lovely setting with great veins over the city. Not like your regular 'castle', great to be included with anyway out in Nottingham.

Centrally located this castle is worth a visit. But do t expect and actual castle. The walls are there and a rather lovely house in the gorgeous grounds. It’s nice wandering around the outside perimeter looking up with a cold pint in your hands from the Trip to Jerusalem pub and thinking of maid Marian back in the day.
