After three years of meticulous restoration work, Nottingham Castle is finally ready for its big reveal.
When the gates open again in June this year, visitors will find cutting-edge developments such as the fully interactive Robin Hood experience in a purpose-built space sitting alongside beautifully restored galleries. Outside is a brand-new, themed adventure playground.
Deborah Dean, principal curator for Nottingham City Museums said: “It means lots of different things to different people and we wanted to bring all of that together and articulate those stories in a new way.”
In an exciting announcement, the Castle team have just revealed they will be featuring the story of another local legend in a temporary exhibition, Hello, My Name is Paul Smith.
Sir Paul’s suit of armour comes in the form of the finest British tailoring and his trusty steed, a Mini car, is parked pride of place in the new visitor centre, decked out in his signature bright-striped livery.
