City of Caves

Discover a hidden world beneath your feet underneath the streets of Nottingham.

Explore original sandstone caves with our actor led tours and meet our friendly characters Archie and Annie the Archaeologists or wander through at your own pace with our fascinating 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.

Come and take part in our new children's activities that provide engaging fun for all ages open every day with special activities available throughout the school holidays.

Wibbly Wobbly Weblink

It may be worth checking out City of Caves's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.

We do strongly suggest you contact City of Caves before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
