The location of Wollaton Park can be reached by both Public Transport or by private car due to its close proximity to Nottingham City Centre. The Hall and adjoining Industrial Museum housed in the Halls former stables area are of interest to all ages.The Estate formerly owned by the Willougby Family and now by the local authority offers pleasant surroundings...

The hall itself is breathtaking and you can spend a good hour wandering around both the surrounding area just taking in the beauty of this building as well as looking at the national history wildlife exhibition inside which is definitely worth taking a look at. The grounds are huge, plenty of open space, a tranquil lake, forest area and kids... More

I've been here for 20 years and it's been kept beautiful (even with the Batman fame). I last went a couple of weeks ago and they've moved the kids playground to a more central location just near the car park. It looks amazing and really fun! Just wish I was a kid again! I tend to do a full walk... More

I have visited Wollaton Park for many a year now. I have seen it through all the seasons, weathers and events. There is always something to do and see around the grounds. As you drive in to the main car park you see the Grandeur of the main hall perched on top of the hill. The walk across the lower... More

I found it hard to choose an overall rating because in some respects I can see that this place has a lot to offer and is excellent value for money. The deers are amazing to see and from the perspective of Natural History then there is clearly a lot that can be gained. Personally, the taxidermy just does not really... More

Great day out, took my daughter (14) and grandson (8). Beautiful building, built in 1588, full of fantastic wildlife exhibits. There was a quiz to do as you go round, super hero traits, Max loved finding the clues and answering the questions. There is also a mineral collection to view, i.e. rose quartz, Tourmaline, malachite, diamond, lapis lazuli etc. my... More
