Over priced food and drink. Take your own and have a picnic. Coffee was gritty dregs. Grounds need a good overall. Used to have good memories of this place. Not anymore. The price to park is ridiculous. Won't be returning.

This has been a park i have come to for years (even before it was hollywood famous!). With deer roaming around and a great lake its a superb place for a lazy sunday walk or to go for a picnic. I also recently went to the openair cinema of the dark night rises which was epic. I would def recommend... More

The hall is excellently preserved and you can walk all around the grounds and the hall for free I wouldn't recommend going inside the hall if you don't like taxidermy ( all of it is from 1800s where they were killed as games) However the downstairs has rooms dedicated to the Tudors I believe The cafe is also very nice...

Hubby and i have visited wollaton hall and park a few times. First time , we went inside the hall as we both love stately homes. Unfortunately for me, they have a huge amount of taxidermy inside, which I really dislike so we have never been inside since. Now we walk our dogs there for a pleasant & enjoyable walk.... More

Hi Dawn. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review; it's lovely to hear you have enjoyed the park so much! The taxidermy in the Hall was donated many years ago and is visited by scientists and researchers to help with conservation work across the world. We do not accept animals that have killed for sport but... More

Walk around the paths with your family, friends, dog etc - it's a lovely place, with great grounds. Not the largest, but enough space to picnic and entertain yourselves for an afternoon. I've never been in the hall itself - just not my thing, but it's certainly impressive enough from the outside!

It's free, it's set in the middle of a nice park with lots of deer, and there aren't that many tourists. There is some interesting history in the hall but probably the main draw will be the collection of taxidermy animals, which you'll probably not find so easily elsewhere. The gardens at the back of the hall are good for... More

A real hidden gem !! I'd never heard of Woolaton but being new to the area checked it out. Easy to park, wide open spaces, a formal garden, a small lake, fabulous herd of deer, Woolaton Hall, and a nice courtyard cafe. In total so much to see do and you could easily spend a day here. It's also great... More

Fantastic place for fresh air and family outdoor fun. We visited on a sunny day before friving 3 hours home and wanted to give the dot some fresh air. Lots of activities on offer for the whole family with kids area and free tours of the hall. Car parking was very reasonable at £2 for three hours
