We decided to visit at the last minute, having lived in the area for years and not done it before. It was well worth it, a very short route but with more seas being opened up all... read more

We decided to visit at the last minute, having lived in the area for years and not done it before. It was well worth it, a very short route but with more seas being opened up all the time, very eerie to see houses under the surface. The tour guide knew her stuff, even when faced with a few difficult... More

First time in Nottingham so it was interesting to find out more from its history. The lady that gave the tour was very knowledgeable and friendly. Although I think the tour targets more of a younger audiences.

We visited during half term and it was easy to book online. Tours gives an interesting insight to the caves, their history and uses over the years. The guide is very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. It would be interesting to find out more about the recent cave discoveries and to see more artefacts they have found and feel... More

Was in Nottingham to see highly recommended Contact lens Specialist. We as a family love history so decided to visit caves if you do not know Nottingham and have time use the Park and Ride Tram service much relaxed and saves expensive parking fees in the city. We were very impressed with the Guide who painted a very good picture... More

If you have £7.95 and 20 minutes free - well worth a visit. My daughter found it interesting so job done :)

With 3 children they were all keen to see the caves and they certainly didn't disappoint, much enjoyed by the adults too. Tour guide was very good and told the story of the caves brilliantly holding the interest of all of us. Fascinating history. We did not realise how popular the caves were and we found when arriving at 2pm... More

Great place to visit if your interested in local history. Tour lasted 40mins and was well worth it. Very informative and even my 8 year old loved it. She didn't really understand what it was all about but loved walking through the caves. I initially thought we'd be walking under the streets of Nottingham but you only go in a... More

The tour is not very long so it is perfect if you have a lot of sightseeing plans to fit into a single day. The tour guide was personable and was patient enough to wait whilst lots of pictures were taken. If you have young children I would definitely recommend but as a lone traveler I enjoyed this and would... More

This was a great place to visit, I've always wanted to go, the kids loved it and got an activity sheet of things to find. It was a guided tour and very educational and funny. Very interesting to hear about all the uses of the caves.

Interesting, but could do with being upgraded as some of the experience was not particularly well kept.
