Norwich Castle keep’s £13.5 million transformation, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, is underway. Here are five reasons to get excited as we look forward to the keep’s grand unveiling in 2021:

  1. Royalty revealed: We’re recreating the palace of Norman Kings – one of medieval Europe’s most important buildings
  2. The people’s palace: For the first time in 900 years everyone will be able to explore all five levels of the keep – from basement to battlements
  3. Medieval treasure: The British Museum’s first medieval gallery outside London will bring treasures of international importance to Norwich
  4. Keep learning: Events and activities will open up the medieval world to all ages
  5. A jewel in the crown: Norwich Castle will take its place as one of the UK’s premier heritage attractions

While the keep itself will be closed during the works, the rest of the museum will continue to welcome visitors and schools.
