William the Conqueror's only castle in East Anglia, Norwich Castle is one of Norwich's 12 heritage sites. The museum holds important archaeological and historical artifacts inside its walls. The castle's galleries display ceramics, jewelry, glass, and textiles. The decorative art collection is the pride of the castle, so you might want to take extra time there. Find the history of the legendary Queen Boudica and the Vikings in the natural history gallery, and treasured paintings from Flemish artist Peter Tillemans among the art collection. One of the castle's largest collections is Margaret Fountaine's butterflies. Tour the castle and learn about its history through interactive displays. Also consider taking the separate popular tours of the dungeons and battlements.
