Nottingham Castle

Commissioned by the Duke of Newcastle, this magnificent 17th century ducal mansion was built on the Castle Rock. Perched high above the city, it provides spectacular views across the city and surrounding countryside. The site on which the castle is constructed is rich in historical importance. William the Conqueror built a wooden castle on the site in 1067, which was later rebuilt in stone by Henry II as the main royal fortress in the Midlands. The 16th century was a time of neglect for the castle, leading to its ruin. King James I sold the castle in 1622 to the Earl of Rutland who stripped it of all valuable materials, such as lead and stone.

England’s history of crime and punishment is a shocking one. As are the sinister and grim stories of Nottingham’s own outlaws which are brought to life in the building where they were judged, imprisoned and executed. To capture and explain this grim and gruesome history, we use actors, audio guides, guide sheets & boards, lighting, sounds, set dressing and exhibitions. Our aim is to educate and entertain and inform everyone who comes through our doors. As well as the museum we also run the ‘City of Caves’ attraction in Nottingham’s Broadmarsh Centre.
