Attraction Information

At City of Caves discover a hidden world beneath your feet underneath the streets of Nottingham.

Explore original sandstone caves with the actor-led tours and meet the friendly characters Archie and Annie the Archaeologists or wander through at your own pace with the 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 the new children's activities that provide engaging fun for all ages open every day with special activities available throughout the school holidays.

Great experience right in the ity centre 5 out of 5 stars

Lovely experience for people of all ages. The little ones have the excitement of the caves without having to leave the city and it's full of history for the adults. Fab way to spend an hour or two!
