Nottingham Castle is a magnificent 17th century ducal mansion built on the site of the original Medieval Castle, with spectacular views across the city. It contains a vibrant museum and art gallery housing collections of silver, glass, decorative items, visual arts, paintings and Nottinghamshire Archaeology and History. The galleries also bring the best regional, national and international artists' work to the city.
Customers to the Beer Festival can visit the Castle Museum free of charge (Open daily 10am - 4pm). Although charges may apply, cave tours can be booked and a visit is also recommended to the Museum of Nottingham Life, which is located at the foot of castle rock next to Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem, claimed to be England's oldest pub.

One year several delivery vehicles used the official postcode for the castle and this took them onto the Park Estate where they were stuck for ages trying to find out how to get back out again!
