You could miss this attraction if you didn't know where it was. Set back in the Broadmarsh shopping centre near the escalators. It's not bad value but for the entry price, I think under 5s go free. There are safety hats available as there are some areas where you could bang your head. There are place which are narrow and... More

This place really surprises a lot of visitors since, if you enter the Broadmarsh Centre through the main entrance you have to go UPSTAIRS to enter the caves. But no, it's not a con, as the Centre was built on the edge of the sandstone cliff. Hard hats are provided and really are needed - even the shortest member of... More

A visit to the caves will take you back in time . A Tannery and many other intriguing places . All below ground . Real history, just as it was , when people lived and worked here. A fascinating place to visit . Do not be fooled , by the fact , that the entrance is at the bottom of... More

The caves beneath the city are amazing. Take an audio tour or one led by a professional guide to learn how people over the centuries have hollowed out the sandstone bedrock to create homes, tanneries, beer cellars, air raid shelters and more.

It's a shame more of the caves aren't open as going on this tour offered a peek into the past. Hearing about the tannery and use of the caves during the war was very interesting.

We bought a combination ticket for The Galleries of Justice and the City of Caves which gave an overall discount of 20% so this review is based on that. We took the audio tour which lasted just about an hour. The caves are interesting and we enjoyed seeing the contrast of the sandstone caves with Victorian houses and the modern... More
