The house was very interesting and the natural history rooms were amazing. So any 'stuffed' animals, some near extinction but when these were done, man did not know the sort of impact we would have. Very interesting for children too if it is explained in...More

An absolute favourite place to visit. So lovely to walk through the grounds amongst deer and rustling leaves. Very family and dog walker friendly.

Hey I love stuffed animals ! My grandpappy was a taxidermist and a master of this noble art. I know good taxidermy when I see it. Wooliaton hall has an exquisite stuffed gorilla which has an authentic winkie. I took many photos.

Peaceful place to visit for a walk or time alone. This place is especially good during the summer periods.

If you like history and architecture and beautiful parks, this is worth a visit while in Nottingham, a short bus ride away from Nottingham centre. I loved the exhibition of the Willoughby family and how they built this Elizabethan mansion, it is like a fairytale...More

A great shame that such a lovely place has such a terrible cafe. Very bleak and uncomfortable and very overpriced. £2.50 for one jam doughnut is totally ridiculous. The sandwich at £4.00 didn't even have butter on the bread. This could be such an asset...More

We visited Wollaton Park during the dinosaur exhibition. The kids had a great time and loved seeing the variety of dinosaurs on show. The park itself has benefited from the recent renovation of signage. Fingers crossed it is a sign of things to come. A...More

They do breakfast and brunch but the new cafe is slightly upmarket so has lots of fancy items on the menu rather than a typical full English etc. The menu did look yummy if a bit expensive though.

Usually they don’t permit them, however if you give them a call and explain giving them rough times, usually there’s not a problem, however I have known in the past that they have used designated areas
