Who would have thought this was just below your feet when you shop in Broadmarsh!

We dropped into the attraction on the off chance and it was well worth the effort. We decided to pair up our visit with a look around the Galleries of Justice by getting a discounted double ticket for the two attractions and I can highly recommend it. The tour was led by some very enthusiastic guides who made the trip... More

We enjoyed this tour of caves in Nottingham which was down to the enthusiasm of the members of staff throughout the experience. You are first taught about the cave system and how they were formed. You are then shown how a tanner used to the caves to create leather and educates you on what it was like trying to make... More

Interesting and varied history was presented by three different guides on our tour through the caves. It was not entirely what we expected as we thought there would be more to see of the caves and less talking but that was not the case. The guides were informative and knowledgable but would have liked more of the caves to be... More

We went here earlier this week. Really enjoyed it. Not sure what some people expect especially for what we thought was a reasonable price, but we were well impressed. It wasn't too busy to,say it was August, and as it's inside the shopping centre you can browse if you are early for a tour. We all enjoyed it, even my... More

very disappointed. Large party which meant it felt rushed. Disappointed with the lack of caves to see when all the promo said it was a labyrinth. Definitely not going again.

The caves entrance is situated on the upper floor of the Broadmarsh shopping Centre. We had not pre booked, as the website suggested, mainly as you could not book online and was surprised to find there were only 5 people on our tour. The previous tour had 25 people so I guess its pot luck! The caves were well worth... More

Worth seeing but not overwhelming. Good to hear the history and how the caves have been used over time. Sounds like more caves will open soon which might help as its a bit limited at the moment.

The caves under the broadmarsh centre are interesting but wish there was more of them to see as part of the tour. 3 character guides, whatever accent the tannery woman was supposed to be we have no idea. We thought it might be a cross between australian and bad cockney. The final guy who was dressed in the army get... More
