i went to visit nottingham castle last year on a day trip from portsmouth i also visited the tales of robln hood in 2006 i felt it was very historical and intresting shame about the tales of robln hood closing down becouse it was a very good atraction for kids and adults i did not know it had closed until i asked the tourst lnformation for some up to date leaflets s rodgers of portsmouth
Not the castle I was expecting but it is a beautiful place and the cave tour is brilliant. The cafe is a little bit expensive but you can sit outside at the tables and the view is amazing. If you visit Nottingham, you have to do up to the castle.
This is a nice place to visit , they quite often have events in the grounds , most of which are free . There is a gift shop in the gate house selling the usual Robin Hood bits and pieces – but not Alan Rickman , sadly . Its quite a big hill to the castle from the gate so beware if you have uncomfortable shoes or wheelchairs in your party . The view from the top is good . Every once in a while there are trips to the roof , often around Christmas .

An ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city shops on a summers afternoon. There’s often an ice cream van so you can sit an enjoy an icecream in the gardens of the castle.
The views from the castle extend over the city and it’s possible to see many Nottingham landmarks such as St Marys church, the council house, Nottingham Court and the evning post building.
The castle itself was slightly disappointing, with little interaction it would leave children less than entertained.
At times throughout the year there are open air performances which are brilliant as long as the weather is good!
No visit to Nottingham would be complete without a visit to Nottingham Castle. Its mostly free to access the gardens area which are beautiful on a warm day. Events are also held here but scedules are available from the tourist centre in old market sqaure. There is a museum and a short film show that you can watch whilst walking through the castle. Everywhere is reminders of this castles great history that surrounds this castle and the tales of Robin Hood and the Sherrif of Nottingham.
This is a lovely Nottingham attraction and focus point.
The gardens are lovely with different parts and feels to it and theres also a museum, which I think is seperate on here.
Theres lots of benches to sit down on as youre walking round, some of the path undulate a bit so not all of its overly suitable if you have someone with you who’s not so good on their feet. There are several different ways to get up to the castle and there are great views across the city from the elevated position of the castle.
There are toilets and a small shop. Would recommend to a friend.
A trip to Nottingham Castle is a lovely way to spend an afternoon on a sunny summers day. The grounds are beautifully kept, the gardener clearly does a great job. There are some fancy flower arrangements and the cobbled floor really gives a sense of age. It’s near the centre of Nottingham, and if you happen to be a student living in Lenton you walk right past it into town on the posh route through the Park area.
I visited the museum and art gallery here, I must admit I’m well versed in neither, so it was all new to me but I enjoyed it. The gallery had a mix of what looked to me like modern art and some more traditional paintings. The museum has various displays, things like old pottery and some historic looking war memorobilia, uniforms and old guns.
It’s a nice relaxing way to spend an afternoon away from the Nottingham town and a good place to visit with your other half!
Nottingham castle is a great place to visit is you live or are visiting nottingham its self. The catsle is great for all the family as it has a play area there and there are great walks around the castle that every one will enjoy. It is also very clean around the grownds and is a plesent place jst to go and sit on the gass and watch the world go buy. It is of cource a great historical place to go and visit as well as it is the original castle from when the famouse robbin hood was around. There is only a small fee to get into the castle so it is worth it. Although the castle is in the centre of nottingham it can be abit hard to find if you dont no were it is, so it is a good idea to get a map befor going to save some time when you are there. overall i recomend all adges to go visit the castle as i have great child hood memouries from there !!
Nottingham Castle became a favourite haunt of mine when I worked nearby in the city centre. It was a great location for chilling out at lunchtime – outside in the gardens on one of the many benches in clement weather, or inside the castle itself whenever the heavens opened or it was just too cold. It’s fairly well known that the term ‘Castle’ is something of a misnomer, but if you take everything at face value for what it is, there is plenty to entertain. The art gallery contains works by some famous names, including local hero Richard Parkes Bonington, and there are plenty of other interesting nooks, including an exhibition about Nottingham.
Just a short walk away from Nottingham’s city centre, Nottingham Castle really is a wonderful place to visit. Built on the site of a medieval castle, the 17th century mansion is a real treat.
Positioned on top of a hill, the castle offers panoramic views of the city. Inside, the castle offers a café, a shop, a museum and an art gallery which are always interesting enough to have a slow stroll around.
The gardens are always marvellously maintained with lovely flower displays. This would have to be my favourite feature of the entire site.
On weekends, there is a charge to access the grounds but City residents and employees can visit for free between Monday and Friday.
Absolute must-see for tourists, the step walk up to Nottingham Castle will burn off a few calories that you can immediately put on again at the ice cream stall or cafe. Great views, beautiful gardens and art exhibitions to explore
I really enjoyed walking around the grounds of Nottingham Castle, and they are very nice for a brief stroll, and it makes a nice contrast with the busy city centre. The view is nice as well. There is a museum, gift shops, a café and a children’s play area, so it would make for a entertaining part of a family day out. Its very, very nice.
