Went to visit the hall and park on a quiet day. The hall has a museum theme with other exhibitions going on, lots of rocks and animal stuff. The park and the gardens are lovely and house is absolutely beautiful!

These are the most beautiful grounds anywhere in Nottingham. Grounds are well manicured year around and the museum is just fascinating. People are friendly and eager to provide more information. Plan on spending a few hours, though all day is a possibility, to see and experience all of it.

A nice old building, lovely grounds. Museum a bit dated. Staff helpful. Visiting the industrial museum in the stables is a must.

Living close by we regularly visit. In good weather this always includes a trip to the relatively new play ground which is large and has variety of equipment for different ages. There are also large parklands, lakeside and woodland walks, birds to feed and deer herds to view (mostly from a distance). In poor weather Wollaton Hall is free entry... More

The kids loved it in the hall especially the animals they thought it was brilliant it surprised me how special they thought it was. The grounds as always looked amazing. Perfect for picnics and to let the kids run their energy off plus lovely play park.

Lovely inner city Park. Huge grounds you can spend a few hours exploring. The hall itself is pretty amazing and was used for filming of the batman film; it was Wayne manor. The cafe serves nice tea and cake and there's usually an ice cream van knocking about. The kids play area near the main entrance is good if it's... More

Plenty of space for the kids to run about. Lovely play area which may get very busy depending on time of the day and week-day. Little cafe on site to get snacks or drinks. Museum was free of charge - all sorts of stuffed animals to see - very nice -

Three disgusting metal toilets which were all wet, with no seats or toilet paper in any of the stalls, my husband said the men's toilets were just as bad and again no toilet paper. The hall itself is a very beautiful and impressive building, but you can only go into a very small part of it. The rooms which are... More
