We spent almost an hour walking through the ancient caves that are now under a mall. They have served many purposes over many time periods and we are grateful that the community didn’t allow the caves to be destroyed. I enjoyed learning about them.

Very well done. Highly recommended. Fascinating glimpse into history of Nottingham and this country as a whole thru these old caves. The role playing in tannery and ww2 air raid shelters particularly entertaining.

No idea - there weren't any when we were there, but email the caves direct to be sure. Hope you enjoy the trip. (also the oldest pub in the UK - 12th century - it's nearby - Ye olde Trip to Jerusalem - good one to tick off)
