When we finally got around to visiting Wollaton Park, we accidentally went on the same day a music festival was being held in part of the park. As young people, we quite enjoyed the background music, though we were disappointed that we missed out on seeing Jess Glynne live! The park is massive, so the music festival only took up... More

First ever visit here. Had a walk around the grounds and they were really good although I do think a little more could be done with maintaining them. Broken fences, lots of rubbish in the lake including a wheelie bin!!!! Not good for the wildlife so much litter. Good to see deer running free and not penned in. Lots of... More

A must if you are in Nottingham. We got the No 30 bus from the Victoria centre to the Hall entrance. Lovely grounds, walks, lake, tea room and the hall itself. We didn't have time (as we sat in the sun too long enjoying the garden and views) to visit the museum, but if back again, I will visit it

It is hard to imagine that such a huge country house and park are hiding behind the walls that surround Wollaton Park within such a built up area of Nottingham. Easily accessed via the city's main ring road and regular public transport drops visitors off near both of the main gates. It's a great day out with everything from lakeside... More

Well worth a visit to wander the grounds, visit the house and also the two museums in the stable block. The cafe is very good indeed. The staff were happy to cook to order some of our order to accommodate allergies etc. The museums in the stable block and behind the shop are well worth a visit. The machinery museum... More

Love Wollaton Hall - cheap day as pay small amount for parking only. Entrance to house is free. Well worth the tours as reasonable price but really fascinating and if you get a good guide will show you extras as well (old bathroom, library).

My partner and myself visited here one Saturday afternoon with our dogs so we weren't able to go inside but had a good long walk in the grounds. The hall looks like it needs a lot of money spent on a refurbishment and the old Victorian Green house is a wasted opportunity. They could convert it into some kind of... More

Wollaton Hall is free to visit except for parking charges. There are extensive grounds with deer that can be explored and the house contains a natural history museum.
