Concierge.com's insider take:
Norwich Castle, built by the Normans as a Royal Palace 900 years ago, is now a great, slightly barmy museum and art gallery, with child-friendly interactive exhibits in the keep. The exhibits here span multiple centuries and include the world's largest collection of ceramic teapots, an Egyptian tomb with mummies, collections of Norwich School paintings, and Lowestoft porcelain. There are also displays of Iceni gold—the Iceni were an indigenous Celtic tribe that occupied the region between about the first century B.C. and the first century A.D.—and rides on a reproduction Iceni warrior chariot.
Open Monday to Friday 10 a.m.–4 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.–5 p.m., and Sunday 1 p.m.–5 p.m.
