When I visited Nottingham, this was one of "the musts" to see, but very disappointed. The caves were MUCH smaller than it seemed on their web site, and you could walk round them quicker than I imagined. I am afraid they were not very interesting at all.

spent a great morning visiting nottingham castle and took in the tour of the caves while there. Very interesting and informative tour but not suitable for those with mobility issues due to steep slopes and sometimes slippy ground. A long hike back up to the castle though if you leave any of your party there!

We visited here today and it was really interesting. Our guide Rachel, spoke clearly and slowly so that everybody could understand and hear her. She was very entertaining and explained the route very logically, with all of the interesting facts about life 'back then'. My daughter aged 6, loved it! The tour was reasonably priced. Great staff and the right... More

Went to visit the city of caves yesterday, I'm sure I went with school as a kid, but i remembered nothing. I love history and seeing how people lived always fascinates me. These caves are underneath the entire city of Nottingham! You only see a snippet of what's actually there. The rock in Nottingham is sand stone and very easy... More

Really fun and interesting. Great to take the family. It is just a walk through the old caves underneath Nottingham but it is very interesting and great atmosphere.

Came across these caves when looking for something to do in Nottingham. The entrance is in the shopping centre and when you get there, it doesn't look like you are about to enjoy your experience, but once we got started, we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff were nice and polite and the information on the audio guides was very good.... More

Its really interesting ..sadly the battery on my audio device drained after about 10mins but we managed with the one device between two ok. It... More

Fascinating to see. Never knew there were so many and how useful and everyday these caves were. Short but informative. Could do with a little more low level lighting to highlight the uneven floor.
