Gateway to Medieval England

Gateway to Medieval England is a four-year project that will reinstate the Norman floors and rooms in the Keep.

New displays and activities will immerse visitors in the sights and sounds of Norwich Castle during its heyday as a royal palace.

The development will open up the keep from basement to battlements. The Norman Great Hall will be transformed to show the lavishly-decorated room that King Henry 1 would have seen when he visited the Castle in 1121.

The result will bring to life one of Europe’s most important 12th century buildings right in the heart of Norwich.
