Unexpected knowlage

This is inside a mall, which you would never know, we found it by accident. Was very very interesting and the guides were quite interactive. Staff is friendly and informative.

Although quite interesting and fact finding. I was disappointed that only a very few caves were actually included in this tour. You can find the entrance, in the Broadmarsh shopping centre

This is quite extraordinary. Learn about how people have used the soft sandstones under Nottingham to tunnel and create cellars through to air raid shelters.

Hard to imagine life in such harsh conditions. Fascinating that people could conduct their jobs with the tanneries and the like, underground. Touring the caves and seeing the preserved street scene was a magical window into the past. There are low areas to duck, not a good attraction for our grandparents to participate, but fine for adults and kids.

Remarkable, fascinating history of a hidden place of interest. Well worth a visit. Amazing to think of people toiling away in this place all those years ago.
