This was a BRILLIANT place to visit. so much information of how our justice system worked. I won't say too much because I don't want to spoil what will happen, but this is a real MUST to visit while in Nottingham.

After previously visiting the Robin Hood Legacy the previous day which was terrible, I was a bit apprehensive for the family on this one. However this was a much better tour with all the character staff being very informative and really playing their parts well especially the sheriff. Lots to do and see, and all the age ranges of children... More

spent a great afternoon taking the tour and haunted experience of the Galleries of justice. Tour guide was really good and made the tour! watch out for the unfriendly spirit we encountered in the female section of the jail - shoved my arm sending my camera flying!!

Staff are really friendly and helpful, the actors were full off knowledge and engaging, the place was amazing plenty of things to look at and really creepy but not in a bad way, would definitely go again as entry price is really cheap wish I had got the joint Cave ticket walk aswell.

Well worth a visit to see the old courtrooms and dungeons. The tour was made very interesting by the staff member dressed up and very enthusiastic. Great place to look around. Would recommend.

The staff are what makes the place, they are always at 1005 and if you are prepared to join in the historical fun, it makes your trip come alive. I went with my partner and we had a great day out

We had a great time for my son's 7th birthday party. As a Horrible Histories fan he wanted a party that fitted this theme so it's lucky we live in Nottingham. From a mock trial, sending all his friends to prison to and the dungeons, it was a great day out. The actors were all great and mixed learning with... More

Went Friday morning after visiting caves on the 11am tour. Really interesting tour and very informative. Its all very well planned out as you move from area to area..the guides in costume make this for me .far better than an audio device. There is plenty to read as you go around and you need a good 2 hours i would... More
