Norwich castle was fascinating. So many things to see. The initial view from the gallery was spectacular looking down on the exhibits. Prisons stories was sad but they gave you a true picture of life in those times

I don't think dogs are allowed inside the castle but probably in the grounds. The castle is accessed by steps and lift from a public thoroughfare where there are seats and people have dogs on leads.
