It's a fun hour, the tour guide is very good and it is a great history lesson. I recommend visiting, I just wish it was longer.

Our guide was really knowledgeable and presented really well. Well worth the £7.50 and 90 minutes. Lots to see, and not really what I think of as a cave as they are all hand hewn and a dirty big concrete shopping centre has been plonked on top. Kids of around 8+ would enjoy it, but probably not teenagers.

Looked forward to my visit to compare with the Victoria Tunnel in my home city of Newcastle, was interested in the overlapping histories such as the use as an air raid shelter. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable but I feel the admission price for little over half an hour represents poor value for money. That said I did opt for... More

Me and my friend visited the cave. It is short and not too expensive. I have seen better but still impressive cause it's old

This fascinating world under Nottingham is indeed well worth a visit, at a reasonable price and accessible to all with moderate ability. You'll see how people lived and worked in these man made caves. The only down side it is so difficult to find situated on the top floor of the Broadmarsh shopping center

We purchased this tour as part of a combined ticket with the Galleries of Justice. It was £13.95 per adult. If you are travelling by tram to here, get off at the Lace Market stop, walk up the street and take the first right and it is located through the door of the shopping centre to the left. We were...

Wouldn't think it was there but saw a recommendation to go & really enjoyed it, worth a view & kind of cool to see how things have build up around this. Not for those who don't like enclosed spaces though.

To be honest when I saw the entrance to this I wasn't that impressed, I mean how many attractions do you find in your local shopping centre? , but the lady selling tickets was very helpful and friendly and it is quite cheap, especially when conjoined with it's sister attraction the Museum of Justice (more on this later). I think... More
