Norwich Castle has dominated the City’s skyline ever since the 12th century, but what's the story of this iconic and much-loved building?

To accompany our fantastic exhibition, The Square Box on the Hill, we're offering a brand new event for primary schools - 'Norwich Castle: Palace, Prison and Peculiarities.'


Bring along your class to meet costumed characters. You'll investigate Norwich Castle's time as a royal palace, discover the story of a 19th century prisoner, help a Victorian curator create publicity for the museum and visit the Square Box on the Hill exhibition. The event links to the Primary History National Curriculum. Available from 19 February to 25 May 2018.
