Shop, café and picnics

Norwich Castle café serves a delicious range of hot and cold snacks, drinks and meals.

Our home made quiche is extremely popular, as are our home made scones and cream teas. Wholesome soups, fresh baked bread, superb sausage rolls and pasties are available each day.

Our younger visitors can select the contents for their lunch boxes and there’s always a range of fresh fruit and yoghurt.

Choose from a range of specialty teas or coffee from our barista or cool down with a soft drink, beer or glass of wine.


For visitors who prefer to bring their own food, we have a picnic room available at weekends and in school holidays.

In warmer weather you can sit and enjoy your picnic at one of the tables outside on the castle mound, with a panoramic view over the city of Norwich. 

Shop at the Castle

The shop, like our café, is free to visit so pop in anytime you’re in the city. It has a wide selection of local crafts, including jewellery and pottery as well as castle souvenirs, posters, prints and an extensive range of greetings cards.

If you have a budding knight in your family, we’ve got everything the young squire will need - wooden swords and bows, armour sets and books on castles and knightly practice.

Take away a memory of your day with reproduction Roman coins, mini cannons and catapults, Egyptian games and some really wild stuffed toys.

Explore our selection of local interest titles, art publications, family history guides and general and specialist history editions.

Norfolk Museums Pass holders, Costume & Textile Association members and Friends of the Norwich Museums receive a 10% discount on all purchases – all the more reason to get involved.
