I saw on social media that the Castle is due to close for a revamp and took the opportunity to visit it and it's Cave tour. The Cave tour was educational and informative and we loved dangling around taking photos. A big thank you to our guide Mark who could see we were enthralled and let us linger a little.a great hour spent and some great pics.... oh and yes Mark "We do believe" xxx

I’m proud to say I live in Nottingham. This castle is medieval and in the heart of the city centre. Easy to get around. Warm, friendly staff, very disabled friendly, exciting for visitors and families especially when events take place. I have been over a hundred times and I always come away with some new knowledge of this castle steeped in history.

As with most things in England you had to pay to get in which was a bit expensive I thought for what you get to see. Inside is limited to the ground floor and that is all arts and artificial. You don't actually get to explore ant rooms ets love the other castles. You can walk to the rooftop where you get a good view of the city. We did the cave tours which was extra cost again but thus was so worth it. The guide was very knowledgeable and you learnt a lot about the history of the castle. The tour went for about an hour. You can look at the ready of the castle easily within an hour. If you are pressed for time I would not bother going. Also don't drive in the town. Use the park and ride option. Much easier than trying to find a park.

Nice views of city but inside castle not worth it. Didn’t do cave tours as more money. You can get in without buying a ticket if you just walk in
