Things to Do

The Home of Robin Hood, Nottingham has much to see and do. Why not stay a little longer and explore this historic city.

Nottingham Castle

Nottingham Castle is a Stuart Restoration-era ducal mansion built on the site of a Norman Castle (starting in 1068). It has been added to extensively through the medieval period, when it was an important royal fortress and occasional royal residence. In decline by the 16th century, the original castle, except for its walls and gates, was demolished after the English Civil War in 1651. The site occupies a commanding position on a natural promontory known as "Castle Rock" which dominates the city skyline, with cliffs 130 feet (40 m) high to the south and west.

City of Caves

Nottingham has the UK's largest network of caves - over 800 are hidden beneath its streets. At The City of Caves, you can discover the largest publicly available section of this vast underground network. Enjoy a memorable adventure in history at the heart of this subterranean wonder.

Soak up the extraordinary atmosphere of the ancient caves carved deep beneath Nottingham’s city centre, including WW2 air raid shelters and a medieval tannery. An audio tour there lasts approximately 45 minutes, so we recommend bringing headphones!
