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.
