City of Caves

Discover a hidden world beneath your feet underneath the streets of Nottingham.  Explore original sandstone caves on performance tours with friendly characters, Archie and Annie the Archaeologists, or wander through at your own pace with a fantastic audio tour.

You will be taken on an archaeological journey under the cobbles of some of Nottingham’s most famous streets and up through Drury Hill.  Discover how Nottingham dwellers once lived and learn about their journey through the ages.

See the caves as they have never been seen before, stripped back to their original historic element and discover the logic that went into building, shaping and maintaining these fascinating dwellings. 

Guests can purchase a joint ticket to the sister attraction, the Galleries of Justice Museum and save 20% on a normal ticket price.  See website for further details and prices.
