Would never know this place was there as it's tucked away in the corner of the shopping centre. Loads of history and a very well guided tour of the caves. Lots of history and it was good they kept it after building on-top of it.

Visited the city of caves. It was okay. The actors were good. It was good to know about the dark history of Nottingham. But would not recommend more than once.

We went and visited the caves we thought they were going to be longer.We were quite disappointed they little and not much of them but the guides did know there stuff but hurried you along.would not take little children as they seem no patience when they asking questions as all kids do.

Now I had doubts but my goodness it was fantastic! Wasn't expecting the history, stories and fascinating information that I soaked in and walked away with as astounded as my kid. She loved it too. Very well created we're the caves that showed ww2 air raid history and do too the story of those earlier century tanners! Very very good... More

Really interesting tour in the intriguing caves under Nottingham city centre, I actually loved how you enter the caves via the shopping centre that has been built up around it.

Never knew these caves even existed until we googled things to do in Nottingham! Bizarre set up on first floor of broad marsh shopping centre, but they are real honest! Informative talk from knowledgeable guide and lots to see and learn about. Recommend, good value.

Even though it was signposted, me amd my partner were confused as to where this was located. Eventually we realised its unique location with the entrance within the shopping centre. Worth going if you like history and to see the sandstone formations made you realise how old this place was and how many stories it held.
