This feature of the city could be enhanced greatly by adding more items of interest such as Yorvik at York. Was not aware of these caves until visiting Nottingham and feel they are crying out for some extra bits & pieces,

Walked around with the audio guide and it was a good experience. Caves are big enough to take a couple of hours to around. Will visit again and probably take the guided tour to learn more about the history.

I'm from Nottinghamshire and didn't even know these existed until recently. Only lasts about 45-1 hour but it's really interesting finding out the multiple uses of the caves over the years, tanning, bomb shelters etc. Staff were lovely too. The audio guide is great as...More
