Attraction Information

Set in over 500 acres of historic deer park, Wollaton Hall is a frankly spectacular Tudor building, completed way back in 1588 and now the home to the city's Natural History Museum! Plus Wollaton's Courtyard Stables are home to the city's Industrial Museum, the Steam Engine House, the Wollaton Visitor Centre and the Yard Gallery, with a changing programme of exhibitions suitable for families exploring art and the environment.

Highlights of the National Connections Gallery include an orangutan skeleton, a hippo's skull and a Humboldt penguin, alongside many other mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, insects and interesting fossils.

The Bird Gallery naturally contains their taxidermied Victorian birds and game heads, along with more contemporary specimens, all ideal for some up close study or the beautiful beasties. Spectacular butterflies, moths, beetles and bugs from around the world are on display too in the Insect Gallery, plus the Nottingham Natural History Museum's famous gorilla and giraffe specimens can be seen in the African Gallery, together with their cheerful cheetah!

There are daily public tours of the hall available at 12:00, 13:00, 14:00 and 15:00 whenever the hall is open. Segway tours of Wollaton Park are available on the last Sunday of the month, for an exciting way of exploring the grounds: for specific times and dates, please contact directly.

Reviews

Batman's house 4 out of 5 stars

Wollaton Park is a favourite with our family and has been for years. The grounds are surprisingly large and there are frequent events, most of which are free. The new playground is great and there are now new cafes too. The only negatives are obviously being a deer park it can be a bit smelly!

formal gardens 1 out of 5 stars

I have visited these gardens for 60 odd years but after todays visit i was extremely disappointed. The plots in front of the camellia house were being prepared with new bedding,good.On walking around to the sensory garden my mood dropped as all the beds were overgrown full of weeds and totally a mess!! Is this the modern way of abusing taxpayers money?! A volunteer gardener I am but no way would we advertise pleasant gardens as a tourist attraction. Utterly disgusted!!
