Caves of Nottingham Reviews
Newest Review: ... more reasonable. Full visitor information can be found at the website http://www.cityofcaves.com/. I'd been looking forward to seeing the caves for a while, but was a little confused when we arrived at the Broad Marsh shopping centre. Weirdly enough the entrance to the caves is a tiny little shop front at the bottom of the escalators on the top floor of the shopping centre! I thought this was a really odd access point, but it did get my curiosity going. When the group had assembled and was ready to take the tour we were lead to the back of the shop and descended a flight of stairs to the first part of the cave chambers. I would say there... more

I'm becoming a frequent visitor to Nottingham these days as it's where my boyfriend lives. One of the things that we did on my latest stay was to visit the City of Caves attraction. I had been told already that Nottingham has a sprawling network of caves stretching across many areas of the city centre, including under my boyfriends house! Unlike the caves we have back here in the West Country which have large open entry points and form part of the rugged countryside landscape, the caves in Nottingham are fully underground carved into the soft sandstone, and the city has been built up over them so you wouldn't even know that they are there. It depends on the ... Read the complete review

Having handed in all our coursework and have three months of summer ahead, we decided to go check out the Nottingham 'City of Caves' given we are going to be here studying a while, we might as well check out the attractions. Paying £5.50 for a student ticket, we were thrilled to explore the caves, spurred on by the woman at the counter who told us it is 'not what you'd expect down there'. WOW. Let me just start by sharing my expectations. I have previously seen a map of the sprawling caves around Nottingham and I've even been shown a video scan imaging of the caves during one of my lectures so I assumed we would be going on a trek like tour around ...

It being Half Term, my brother, cousin and I decided to go to the double whammy of the Galleries of Justice and the City of Caves. Galleries of Justice were good fun once you got past their laughable temporary exhibition on Robin Hood. Not so, the City of Caves. We were "welcomed" by the leopar-printed old harridan at the front desk who barked at us to sit down. It being Half Term, they had dispensed with the audio tour, so we were left to wander a large number of areas without any information. The two people who were 'actors' on the tour were ok, but we came out none the wiser than when we had come in, feeling as if we'd totally wasted our £6 ... Read the complete review

With it being the school holidays, I've been trying to keep my daughter busy and entertained . Not having access to a car, our adventures have been largely limited to areas we can reach by bus - and nowhere is more handy than Nottinghams City of Caves attraction, the entrance of which is situated on the upper floor of the busy Broadmarsh Centre . If travelling on any of the local bus routes into Nottingham, the attraction is only a few minutes walk. It's also only about 5 minutes walk from the train station, and there is a large car park just outside the Broadmarsh Centre . It is worth noting that there are two types of tours available, audio tours ... Read the complete review
