Quality family time is important and visiting a castle in Norfolk and exploring local heritage makes a great day out for all of the family. Some castles are now ruins some are still pretty much intact and protected. Castles were built for power and to defend against an enemy during war. Most castles we see today were built after the Norman Conquest. As time moved on the construction and sophistication increased to the more elaborate ones we see around today.
