Caves of Nottingham

Beneath the city centre of Nottingham from the soft Sherwood Sandstone, hundreds of caves were dug out many years ago. In the last 750 years more than 400 caves were cut out. They were used as storerooms, factories, pub cellars (Ye olde Trip to Jerusalem), dwelling houses or air raid shelters and are open today for tours around the various caves. The Caves are open Mon-Sat 10-17, Sun 11-17. Admission costs Adults £4, Children £3, Students £3, Seniors £3.
