    Beautiful stately home and fantastic natural history museum! The Titus exhibition is amazing and the skeleton is massive and intimidating. £13 very well spent!
    A big shout out to staff members! Knowledgeable and very friendly!

    Sited in the old Courthouse and Shire Hall this beautiful building is packed with history. Prison cells, court rooms, exercise yard with gallows, exhibits, photos and videos. The exercise yard has a wall where prisoners have carved their names on bricks, some with dates and convictions.

    The cells are varied but all grim. The hole with no windows or light where prisoners were thrown and forgotten. Women's cells, debtors cells and condemned cells. Great laundry and an appropriately dressed attendant to take visitors through its history.

    A court case is enacted as is a hanging with visitors playing parts. Good fun.

    I could have spent all day here there is so much to see. Leave yourself at least five hours for your visit to do it "Justice".

    Went here with my boyfriend. It comes with an audio tour to walk you through what happened in the different caves or what they were used for. Tour is about 40 minutes long and they do try to keep a gap in between the groups so we don't disturb each other. Of course this didn't stop people from passing through and disrupting us but that's not the fault of the place itself.

    Absolutely amazing. What a voice !! Thoroughly enjoyed the show and Gladys Knight looked fantastic. Every song was to perfection and she smiled all the way through. Thank you for a lovely night. We danced the night away . Lynne Hibbert

    As city squares go, Nottingham's one is quite good, with many interesting streets leading from it. A good place from which to begin exploring Nottingham

    A fascinating museum with enthusiastic volunteers. The exhibits were brought to life by the knowledge and stories of the volunteers.

    Easy parking, clean toilets, friendly staff and lots of interesting objects to look at. Green was the mathematical miller so lots of activities based on maths to keep adults and children busy. Lots of children based activities which seemed popular and some families had booked in advance. If you have children probably best to check availability of activities for children.
    I loved the windmill, the community garden, the mathematical puzzles and my coffee! Thank you!

    Had a fantastic time at Adrenaline Jungle - chose Archery and the Assault course for our family of five (17, 14 and 13). Don was endlessly patient teaching us archery and encouraging us over/under/through the obstacles on the assault course. A great couple of hours of family fun, thank you!

    Very expensive fish and chips once inside - not worth the £7, but we had come on the tram and time was limited to eat elsewhere.
    Toilets were reasonably clean and queue wasn’t too bad on entry. Terrible queues after concert finished.
    Steps down to our seats were awful - lack of handrails, so daren't move once seated till the end. Staff on the floor area manning the stairs close to our seats were really friendly and did a great job of helping people.

    One big negative was the position of the stairs right besides our seats - people up and down ALL the way through the concert restricting our view somewhat.
    Some people seemed to spend more time up in the bars than the actual concert!
    Next time I would ensure I booked seats away from the stairway or higher up so as not to limit the view.

    Concert good though!

    East Bridgford Garden Centre is wonderful. We love to visit and browse around the vast array of Garden and Home wares. There is a huge eating area which is always heaving with diners. A cake and coffee or tea is always a must for us. However, on our recent visit we decided to order something a little more substantial. What a disappointment!. The chips were undercooked and the gourmet burger was anything but gourmet!. Our ravenous teenage son couldn’t stomach it. The gluten free scone would have made a superb door stop. Most of our food went uneaten. Our little daughter’s sandwich was served in a cellophane packet with no plate. These are not the standards which we expect from such a venue, particularly when the prices are so high. We will not be returning in a hurry.
