Norwich Castle


Planning a visit at the Information DeskNorwich Castle welcomes disabled visitors. There is parking for Blue Badge holders next to the Castle’s main entrance. Nearly all the museum is accessible to wheelchair users - our staff can help you plan a level access route around the building. Handling opportunities are often available, and many of the displays incorporate multi-sensory experiences. Assistance dogs are welcome. Hearing loops are available at the reception desks and for our lectures and talks.

There is no wheelchair access to the Castle battlements and dungeons, and some access restrictions in the Keep. A film introduction to the Castle Keep, and 'virtual tours' of battlements and dungeons are available. These are BSL-interpreted and audio described.

If you would like access information in any other format such as Braille, large print, audio cassette, or CD, please contact us on:
