After the restoration of Charles II in 1660, the present 'Castle Mansion' was built by Henry Cavendish, 2nd Duke of Newcastle on the foundations of the previous structure. However, it lost its appeal to the later Dukes with the coming of the Industrial Revolution, which left Nottingham with the reputation of having the worst slums in the British Empire outside India. When residents of these slums rioted in 1831, they torched the mansion. The mansion remained a derelict shell until 1878, as a reminder to the people of Nottingham of what they had done. Eventually it was restored as the Nottingham Castle Museum in 1875, then opened in 1878 by the then Prince of Wales, King Edward VII. The Castle Mansion was the first municipal art gallery to open in the UK outside London. It is still used as a museum today.
