Nottingham Castle

Situated on a high rock, Nottingham Castle commands spectacular views over the city. In the Middle Ages, it was a major royal fortress and occasional royal residence. The Duke of Newcastle built a mansion on the site after it had been largely demolished in 1649. Today, the castle is open as an art gallery and museum.
