Norwich castle has a wonderful dungeon, (if you are not a staying to serve time.) The tour there allows visitors to sit in a dunking chair. They strapped me in and it was very scary. They explain the witches trials and the “science ” of knowing from bumps on the head if you are a criminal. The view from on top the castle is beautiful. You can see the market and the whole town. Worth the time to visit!

Norwich Castle was started in 1100 after the battle of Hastings. It has a large moat and dungeons that you can tour - for a price, they even turn out the lights while you are down there. The castle itself has a museum inside and is well worth a visit, has stuffed birds and there eggs, stuffed lions, tigers, coins, paintings, ancient armour, stone age articles, There is a stone well. At one point the castle was a prison - the last person to be hung there was some time around 1884 -85.
