Great hall and grounds to explore. Good place for children and adults alike however a bit hilly so anyone having trouble walking may struggle. Large lake and deer often wandering around the grounds

A wonderful place to kill a little time. There's a small museum within the hall, and the park is stunning, particularly in the autumn with all the beautiful colours of the trees. Parking charge is a little steep - I feel there should be a concession for local residents!

With free entry to the house and grounds easily accessible by bus or car with car parking available Wollaton hall has a great deal to offer whether it be an exploration of the house, a picnic in the grounds whilst admiring the deer or a stroll through the grounds down to the lake.

Great place for family visit. Interesting industrial museum, natural history museum, nature walks, plenty of space for kids to play and run around, And the added bonus at Christmas of an opportunity to see "Santa's Reindeer" actually the red deer native to the park, but young children can be persuaded!!

It's a really good place to come in nice weather and have a picnic with children. In the hall there's stuffed animals and stuff to look at.

Set in magnificent grounds where you can take a lengthy stroll by a lake or have a picnic. The hall featured as Wayne Manor in Batman Returns. There are herds of deer in the grounds. Entry to the hall is free and there is ample parking at £2. The hall is a museum of natural history of animals and insects.... More

We didn't have much time so just had a quick walk through, the park/gardens are really lovely, great place for a picnic with friends and family. Very informative museum. The taxidermy is done really really well. Beautiful building, rich in history and so authentic. Interesting fact is that one of that Batman movies was partly shot there.

What's not to love about Wollaton Hall & Park? There are always loads of events to go to, the park is great for picnics, learning to ride a bike (as my son did when he was little), walks, deer-spotting, lazy afternoons and of course it's now the home of Batman!!
