Funding award for Castle keep
Norfolk Museums Service has been awarded £9.2 million of National Lottery funding, through the Heritage Lottery Fund, for Norwich Castle’s Gateway to Medieval England project. The project will see the Castle keep transformed to its original Norman layout and make all five levels of the keep accessible for the first time.
Funding for the project has also come from public and private grants and donations, including £1.95 million from Norfolk County Council.
Work is set to begin in summer 2019 and the rest of the museum and the art galleries will remain open throughout.
