Really interesting attraction. Completely unaware until recently that Nottingham had caves! Audio guide was good but the health and safety information on the audio tour was completely over the top - the voice over was so slow and monotonous

I went here with my three grand-kids and they loved it. I was a bit wary of the steps - alright going down but a bit of a trial for me getting back up them!! Fascinating journey through history from seeing the caves as homes to an air raid shelter from the 2nd world war!

Me and the hubby popped to Nottingham for a day trip and decided to do the Cave tour. We only had to wait 20 mins for the tour which was good. The tour was interesting and lasted about 40 mins. Definitely worth a visit

Having heard a lot of about the sandstone and the caves that were man made below Nottingham many many years ago I thought we give this a go to see them for ourselves. We arrived very early so the place was nice and empty and we were very kindly greeted at the entrance and provided with hard hats and a... More

These caves previously used by tanners are under the shopping centre and car park. We just turned up and booked slot for couple hours later. Guide was knowledgeable and history fascinating.only about £4 each well worth a visit.

We have visited a lot of caves, but nothing like this. The whole experience was a surprise and I don't want to spoil it for anyone who wants to go by going into too much detail..... It was full of interesting facts and the audio guide was an excellent way of bringing it all to life. We would thoroughly recommend... More

I had last come here about 18 years ago ad I thought it was very good. As far as I remember (and admittedly I might be wrong) when I went before, you made your own way around the caves and I certainly don't remember a hat (not that the hat was an issue). This time we were taken around by... More

Thought this tour would be longer and that the caves would be a bit deeper. Apparently we were at ground level all the time. Interesting and educational but not quite what I was expecting.
