A real hidden gem !! I'd never heard of Woolaton but being new to the area checked it out. Easy to park, wide open spaces, a formal garden, a small lake, fabulous herd of deer, Woolaton Hall, and a nice courtyard cafe. In total so much to see do and you could easily spend a day here. It's also great... More

Fantastic place for fresh air and family outdoor fun. We visited on a sunny day before friving 3 hours home and wanted to give the dot some fresh air. Lots of activities on offer for the whole family with kids area and free tours of the hall. Car parking was very reasonable at £2 for three hours

We went with my nieces and family friends. The kids loved it. There were a lot of family having picnics and playing together. The house was magnificent. It was beautiful and the front lawn was so vast made me wonder how beautiful it'll be on winter with snow..

Wow - just loved this place. We went on a sunny Bank Holiday Monday so there were loads of people there. It didn't feel crowded though because there is just so much space to roam. Gardens, parkland, playground, tea room, toilets, lake - this place has the lot. And so dog friendly - our German shepherd loved it 😀 (it... More

A taste of what the aristocratic life would have been like centuries ago. The mansion is under a little disrepair and they might have done a better job of bringing it back to its original charm by filling it with period furniture and artifacts but right now the entry is free, so now is a good time to visit. The... More

Lovely park with large children's play area. Deer roaming free and plenty of water birds on the lake. House free to look around, definitely worth a look. Nice cafe, with courtyard seating in good weather.

My husband and I only live a few miles away from Wollaton Hall but have not been for many years. We took my husband's brothers and we all really enjoyed looking round the Industrial Museum then we had a cup of tea/coffee. We then went into Wollaton Hall (which is free) and again enjoyed seeing the animals, birds, reptiles and... More

We visited on a lovely August day ,the grounds are worth the effort alone if you just want a picnic or to treat the dog to a new walk. A very impressive exterior to the building and some great displays in particular to animals in glass cases, one most impressive not so. Wollaton Hall has no entrance fee, however for... More
