Caves themselves are not particularly impressive but Tour Guide (Andy) brings them to life in an engaging and numerous way. Andy made us glad that we had made the decision to do the tour. Bizarre entrance to the cave via a deserted shopping centre.

Ignore the fact that the entrance to the caves is in a shopping mall, and that looks rather shabby from the entrance. Once you start the tour, and enter the caves, there is much to learn and it is rather fascinating how the caves ended...More

We were lucky to have a very good tour guide, she knew what she was talking about. The tour gave a nice impression of the history of Nottingham with the caves as the red line through the story. Bit of geology, some Robin Hood, some...More

Remember to listen to the audio guide or join a guided tour! If you don't listen to the explanations, then you'll find it confusing and boring. Not many caves are shown here, but the audio guide provides you with interesting information, so it takes at...More

No idea - there weren't any when we were there, but email the caves direct to be sure. Hope you enjoy the trip. (also the oldest pub in the UK - 12th century - it's nearby - Ye olde Trip to Jerusalem - good one to tick off)
