Interesting tour of the caves under the city. Easy to book and reasonably priced. The tour lasts about 45 minutes, Lauren our guide was entertaining, however she could have provided more information and taken a bit more time in some areas.

When I read there were caves under Nottingham I became quite intrigued so I booked a tour and followed the guide around. Not bad if you just want to see a small area of the caves.
