Norwich museums come alive at night
Hundreds of visitors flocked to Norwich Castle for an evening of torch-lit trails, art and historic music.
Museums at Night returned to the city for a second year, with the castle one of the venues opening its doors for free.
More than 700 people had visited within 90 minutes of the attraction opening at 5pm yesterdat.
Glen Hammond, from Thetford, said he travelled to Norwich with his sons especially for the event.
He said: 'It's a good idea and I think my sons are enjoying the armour and the swords. It's good to get more people in to the castle to see different things.'
