Norwich Castle Keep is closed to the public on Tuesday 24 January (2pm - 4.30pm) and Wednesday 25 January (12.30pm - 4.30pm) for essential surveying work associated with our exciting Norwich Castle: Gateway to Medieval England project.

This survey, using laser scanning and drone photography, will create a uniquely detailed stone-by-stone drawing of all the internal walls of the building.

Please be assured that the rest of the museum will remain open during this time.

…I would say that Norfolk Museums Service is one of the best county museum services in the country and it’s doing a great service to the people and visitors of Norfolk.

I am absolutely thrilled. I could never in a thousand years imagine that I could be fortunate enough to find a fossil and have it identified.
