For £8 entry it’s good value for money, lasts about 40-45 minutes and is interesting and informative, however, is very average. Compared to Mary Kings Close in Edinburgh it’s lacking. Nevertheless worth a visit and a good short activity to do whilst in Nottingham.

Seeing reference to audio tours in the reviews (and the little placards in the caves & tunnels), I'm unsure if the venue offers different tour types, or have changed their approach recently. In any case our tour on a Saturday morning was a guided tour,...More

Step back into the history of Nottingham. This guided tour envelopes you in the true history of our wonderful town. The guides are very informative and helpful.

This tour only takes you a few feet below ground and basically isn't as "exciting" as the adverts would have you believe. Go if you have kids, but that's it.......though the tour leader did a great job with limited resources. Open up deeper ones if...More

I don’t think it does. A lady was stood behind a desk you could probably leave things with her. It’s in a shopping centre.... there maybe somewhere in there where you can leave things.

The tours are different, with the City of Caves representing more of a social history of Nottingham cave dwellers, while the Castle tour has a more military slant as part of the castle
