Visited with my grandaughter, age 11, who was enthralled as to how people used to live hundreds of years ago. Well programmed tour and excellent guide. Having been once you probably won't go again, as there wouldn't be anything new to see. But really interesting....More

I’m told this is a really interesting historic venue. There’s no warning as you approach the entrance that mobility impaired visitors are not welcome which is disappointing.

Relatives took my sister and I to see the caves in Nottingham, it was awesome. Lots of history, and good tour by our guide. This is suited to just about everyone, though quite a few steps, some uneven ground.

The guide Alice was wonderful, very enthusiastic, in character, very clear to understand. One of the best guides we have had any attraction anywhere. Tour is just under an hour so just about right.

This place is well worth a visit to anyone interested in history. We went to Nottingham for a day out & found this place as we were walking around. It is very interesting & mind consuming whilst wandering back in time.

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)

I don’t think it does. A lady was stood behind a desk you could probably leave things with her. It’s in a shopping centre.... there maybe somewhere in there where you can leave things.
