First of all, the title "Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery" is misleading. There hasn't been a castle in hundreds of years. What stands there now is a replica (not even original) of an unimpressive mansion that had been built in the castle's place. Secondly,...More

There is not a lot left to see of the castle, which was a disappointment, though the caves are worth seeing. (Though really, if you've seen one cave, you've pretty much seen them all.) The exhibition was worth seeing in the gallery upstairs, but the...More
