- Really interesting place: much bigger than expected with lots of things to see. Would highly recommend for a day out in Nottingham.Written February 4, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Excellent day out. Free entry to a large part of the house. A small tour or large tour if wish for a fee. The free Natural History museum was brilliant. Nice cafe. Good playground. Acres of land and manmade lake. £5 all day car park.Written February 6, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The museum isn't slick or gimmicky: it simply packs an impressive variety of machines -- horsedrawn carriages, vintage motorcycles, textile frames, vintage telephones, massive beam engines -- into a relatively small set of spaces. If you need more information, the volunteer curators will happily deliver all the geekish detail you could ask for. Highly recommended for anyone who likes ogling pre-digital technology.Written February 1, 2023
- I visited with a large group of university students (ages 19-25) and I was delighted by our experience. The cafe and gift shop have a warm and cozy ambiance. The staff was kind and eager to share their knowledge. Sir Julian gave us an overview of the framework knitters and then we toured all the different areas of the grounds. Everyone’s favorite part was being hands on and making their own kitted piece. This is an important place and I’m so glad we got to experience it. I highly recommend a visit here and then head to the Frame Breakers pub afterwards for a pint to reflect on the impact of the Luddite rebellion.Written November 26, 2022
- This is a lovely theatre with fantastic helpful staff.
The panto was not as enjoyable as usual.
Too many fart jokes and generally daft behaviour.
Jo Pasquale put his heart and soul into his performance but the others were mediocre.
I have been coming to panto here for about 60 years.
The old panto's were the best ,beautiful sets and costumes and class performers.
Bring back the good old days!
I have given 5* purely because of the building and the staff.
The panto would be a 3*Written February 6, 2023
- This is a great little museum with welcoming staff and a fascinating story about the windmill and former owner George Green.
We visited with my 6 year old who was really engaged with the science experiments and learning how a windmill works.
The site is a set within some gardens which would be great in the spring or summer so we will definitely return.Written January 29, 2023
- What a surprise this place was! Visited January 31st 2023 with my 17 year old son. On entering the attraction we were greeted by a lovely lady who could not have been more welcoming. The cost was £8 each which was very reasonable.
There are 3 floors to explore with lots to see including a few movie props, you could easily spend a couple of hrs in here, longer if you wanted to read all the articles etc. We stayed just over an hr as I had a train to catch.
Definitely recommend paying this place a visit if your ever in Nottingham and its only a short walk from the Castle and the Robin Hood statue.Written February 1, 2023
- Frequent service but can be busy at times. Not always somewhere to sit. Always seems to be a cleaner hopping on to clear any rubbish. DO NOT TAKE FOOD AND / OR DRINK WITH YOU.Written January 27, 2023
- Quite often something going on in Old Market Square like a "Big Wheel" or continental market. Or just a nice place to sit and watch the world go past.Written January 27, 2023
- Used this venue many times as it is local to us
As always staff friendly and efficient.
Food and drink a bit pricy but to be expected in this type of venue.
On this occasion we found it to be very cold (never had this issue previously) ……. We were sat on floor seating and while I know this is an ice area I have never felt so cold at an indoor event - everyone around was complaining and had to put coats back on, it literally did feel like my feet were blocks of ice - maybe they’ve just had their gas bill and decided to turn off the heatingWritten December 15, 2022
- Our choice for our last morning on a short city break. We could see it was a lovely asset for the city. Beautifully maintained, very clean, and some interesting points of interest. Sadly we found the lack of information on the trees something of a disappointment.Written July 14, 2022
- Had a fantastic time at Adrenaline Jungle - chose Archery and the Assault course for our family of five (17, 14 and 13). Don was endlessly patient teaching us archery and encouraging us over/under/through the obstacles on the assault course. A great couple of hours of family fun, thank you!Written August 24, 2021
- I hate the term hidden gem as it is overused when describing many interesting places, I prefer hidden treasure or better still lucky find and Stonebridge City Farm is a lucky find.
Located just outside the city centre of Nottingham, this little urban farm and petting zoo and gardens is an ideal place to take young children all year round. There is a play area with climbing frames and swings and slides for children to have fun, a creepy crawly corner, a café selling drinks and cakes and a farm shop selling produce grown in the gardens which contain orchard trees and greenhouses and hidden away is the apiary. The honey produced by the bees is sold in the farm shop alongside the wonky looking vegetables and fruits. There is an area for hand washing and this is stressed as a must use area not only because of COVID but because of touching animals.
Over the years I have visited I have seen all sorts of animals come and go including Lucy, one of the cheekiest of goats Ive come across. On one visit she grabbed the bag of food right out of my hand and blew raspberries at me oh, you can by animal feed for 60pence a bag and the kids love to feed the little animals especially the kids and lambs. In addition to the goats and sheep I have seen pair of Kune Kune Pigs, Charlie the Shetland Pony, cows, rabbits, guinea pigs, ponies, chickens of all breeds including some strangely furry looking chickens, ducks, birds, and even a couple of turkeys.
As a registered charity it is funded entirely on donations and grants, its staff are all volunteers and host the educational visits from schools as well as general public visits. The farm has been open since 1980 or a site with residential houses one side and a few industrial units the other. It’s a about 10-15 minutes walk from the city centre and buses run along Carlton Road only a few 100 yards away. Here is a small parking area and much of the farm is accessible to people with disabilities although some of the garden and orchard areas are not level ground and can cause a few stumbles.
There is no admission fee although in my opinion 50 pence per child and £1 per adult would not be too much to charge and would go a long way to running the site.Written August 30, 2022
