Went to this place for the Family festival. Maybe didn't see as much of the park as I would have hoped but I have to say the approach to the Hall was magnificent and the hall itself dominates the landscape wherever you look. I am maybe slightly biased at my outing to this place because the weather was perfect and... More

We had a really nice walk around the grounds, and then a visit to Wollaton Hall. It's perhaps an under-rated attraction...it is a very good visit on a summer's day. Allow yourself 3 hours to enjoy the Hall and the grounds, and ideally go mid-week to avoid some of the crowds..

Spent the day at Wollaton Park for the Splendour Festival 2016. What a great park to spend the whole day in listening to great music & generally having a great time. The back drop of Wollaton Hall was an added bonus.

A great spot for all the family and so much space and fabulous for the music festival which has become a regular event now. Excellent organisation and public transport to and from the event.

Car parking is cheap, facilities are good, can't really fault the place. Lived in this city all of my life & still enjoy a day there.

We visited for a couple of hours before heading into Nottingham city centre. Parking cost around £4 for the entire day. Although the car park is very basic and dusty I didn't really mind as the park itself is free to wonder around. There doesn't appear to be a whole lot around the park but there are huge wide open...

Took some food and read a book then had a walk around the house. All free I just paid a little for parking. Would be great for kids as the play area was huge.

Went to the 2016 Splendor feastival held here and what a stunning location. The park is massive and as a previous reviewer said you would not think you were any where near a big city. The hall looks like it could be out of a gothic fairy tale and although I didn't go in I am seriously considering going back... More

It's huge, lots of walking can be done, dog friendly, a car park and it also has a big lake you can walk around. There are deer grazing all year round but certainly times of the year (e.g. rutting season ) it's best to stand afar. The hall itself has a free museum (should it rain) and a tea room... More

We went to Woolaton House for a look round and have a picnic on the way to Nottingham. It is free to get in, but the place and gardens look so neglected and unloved. The gardens especially. It was quite sad really. It's such a shame it's not been maintained and looked after. I'd even be happy paying a small... More
