This was a different, informative and enjoyable tour. The guide was knowledgeable and very friendly. Loved hearing how the caves had been used over the years. Well worth a visit.

Visited The Caves yesterday whilst spending the day exploring Nottingham. Situated within Broadmarsh Shopping Centre 'The Caves' are a truly unique look at how troglodytes lived. Uneven floors, stone and concrete steps - not suitable at all for mobility impaired or wheelchair users. Travelling underground (and back up again) down a flight of steep metal steps you enter a world... More

I looked online for something to do inside due to the weather being poor yesterday. This came up, as it's inside the Broadmarsh Shopping centre. I booked online for the guided tour as it was the only info I could find about going and it said that it's advisable to book. It wasn't, you can just turn up and visit... More

Really interesting to see the old caves of Nottingham and experience how people used to live. Feels odd to have to go to the top level of broadmarsh shopping centre to enter the caves! Great for the whole family (except people who struggle with steep stairs).

I expected more of the caves, however it is a good thing to do if you're bored and it's a rainy day. A friend and I did have the place pretty much to ourselves and had fun taking silly pictures, but we could have done that at home.

Nottingham city is known for its numerous sandstone caverns and underground tunnels, many of which are believed to date back to medieval times. One of the most easily accessible cave entrances can be found at the Broadmarsh Shopping Center and leads to cellars, an old air-raid shelter, a historic tannery and a recreated Victorian slum area, all standing beneath the...
