We had trouble finding the location, and it id on the upper floor of the shopping centre. Very interesting but is relatively short, walked around by yourslef with prerecorded info. You only saw a small amount of the vast caves which are over many layers....More

There is a lot to see here - caves from 1250, Victorian cellars, an old tannery and air raid shelters. The people in costume add an extra touch - highly recommended.

Had not idea about the caves under Nottingham. A tour of these caves is recommended as shows the historic use of the caves over the ages including as air raid shelters during WW2.

Nice tour, reasonably priced, lasting 45 minutes or so, interesting delve into the history of the man made caves and their various purposes down the years, tour guides OK but attempts at humour can be left out next time!

Hi, As the caves were designed for living and working in, most areas are large, however there is one low doorway where everyone will need to duck down. At no point are you crawling around for example. Hope that helps.
