Norwich Castle: Gateway to Medieval England is an exciting new project that will see Norwich Castle Keep transformed back to its former glory, as one of the finest Romanesque castles in Western Europe. The Project will drastically improve the visitor experience by reinstating the Norman principal floor and making the Keep a more understandable and accessible building. A new British Museum Partnership Gallery of the Medieval Period will also be created within the Keep.

The aim of the Gateway to Medieval England project is to restore the historical and architectural integrity of Norwich Castle Keep, one of the most important and impressive secular buildings of its time in Europe. Currently reduced to a shell, the project will reconfigure the internal layout to replicate the original floor levels and rooms and create a powerful immersive learning experience, enabling people to explore the building as a Norman royal palace. The restored internal floors and spaces will provide a state of the art community venue supporting an extensive and creative programme of formal and informal learning events, alongside commercial functions. A new British Museum Gallery of the Medieval Period will highlight the importance of Norwich within Britain and on the international stage.
