Nottingham Cave Trail

About

Discover Nottingham's underground on this Nottingham Cave Trail, taking you around the top 10 caves buried beneath the streets of the city centre.

On this trail you will explore caves beneath all areas of the city, from the historic Lace Market to Nottingham Castle. Discover the gruesome past of England's oldest Inn Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem, learn more about the use of caves and dungeons at the National Justice Museum, visit the City of Caves attraction and discover the variety of uses Nottingham's caves have had over their history, or learn more about some of the cities fine watering holes as you visit The Salutation Inn, The Hand and Heart and the Bell Inn.

Nottingham is known as the city of caves so this trail is a must for anyone keen to learn more about the cities underground history during their visit.
