Last Friday was a Bank Holiday, so naturally Nottingham Castle was closed. But there are exciting plans for it, as the Nottingham Post reported a couple of years ago:
Nottingham Castle is to be revamped into a "world-class tourist attraction" with plans for a £24 million redevelopment.
The project is designed to double the number of visitors to 400,000 a year by celebrating its history and making more of the Robin Hood legend.
New features will include a redesigned and extended museum telling the history of the wars, protests and riots that have centred on the castle over the years.
The plans also include opening up the caves beneath Castle Rock and installing a glass lift from Brewhouse Yard up to the castle.It is already possible to take a guided tour through the caves beneath the castle.
