Listen to the audio tour here

Discover a hidden world beneath your feet and tour our ancient network of caves. You’ll hear stories of the caves and how they were used in years gone by. Your journey will take you around the winding passageways of Nottingham’s largest network of sandstone caves. Come and explore how the caves were used as dwellings, cellars, WW2 air raid shelters and even a medieval tannery.

We would strongly advise you to book in advance wherever possible to avoid disappointment, particularly during the school holidays and bank holidays.

The City of Caves will be closed every Tuesday and Wednesday, 24-26 December and 1 January
