Located at the edge of the Broadmarsh Shopping Centre, the City of Caves attraction (or Nottingham Caves as it is also known) takes you down below Original Anglo Saxon tunnels introducing you to the cave dwellers and fugitives that hid out down below Nottingham’s City Centre Centuries ago.

Although the caves were almost shut down when the Broadmarsh Centre was built, thanks to local volunteers and hard work from the guys behind the attraction, the caves are still open up to the public giving tours every day of the week, from 10.30am until 5pm (although the last admission is at 4pm). On the tours, you’ll be educated and entertained, learning the history of the caves and how they have been adapted and modified over the modern age. Tours cost £5.75 for Adults, £4.25 for Kids, Students and OAP’s and £16.25 for a family ticket (two adults and two children, or one adult and three children), as well as children under 4 getting in for free.

As well as the tours, the City of Caves offers up an Enchanted Well to grant all of your wishes and the Rock Shop, giving you the chance to buy artefacts and gifts that claim to be billions of years old, as well as taking you through time from the Medieval Tannery to Victorian Slums right up until refuges from the Blitz.

As well as offering discounted tickets that will allow you to tour the caves as well as Nottingham’s Galleries of Justice, the City of Caves offers up the chance to book the caves privately for Birthday parties, and also gives you the chance to use the caves to organise and take part in the seeking out of paranormal activities deep beneath the city.

With all the tours, secrets and discoveries, the City of Caves are sure to give you an experience you are unlikely to forget very quickly, and if you do, hey, it’s only £5.75 a ticket, so just head back in!
