Nottingham Castle

D2N2 are proud to be investing £7million of funding (£5million from the Local Growth Fund and £2million from Enterprise Zone business rates income) into the redevelopment of one of the major tourist attractions in the region, Nottingham Castle.

The programme of works includes the construction of the new Visitor Centre and the redeveloping Ducal Palace, the Grounds, and the sprawling cave systems hidden within the Castle Rock.
