Bridewell Alley, Norwich NR2 1AQ, United Kingdom

Norwich Castle, Norwich at the Bridewell and Strangers Hall bookings are all dealt with via the same co-ordinator, Tessa North (contact number 01603 493636).

For home education groups the cost is £2.40 per home-educated child, with one adult per home-educated child receiving free entry.  Other adults and children four or over pay normal admission.  These places need to be booked in advance of the visit.  Lunch spaces can also be pre booked and are subject to availability.
Downloadable resources on their website here: http://www.museums.norfolk.gov.uk/Learning/Resources/index.htm , and Tessa can also organise workshops for groups of maximum 20. These are typically object-handling or a tour and cost £2.50 (minimum charge £40).

This is also a Children’s University destination – whereby children get free entry with their passport as an alternative.
