Wollaton Hall - Visit Nottinghamshire


DON'T MISS: Wollaton Hall is currently home to the Titus: T-rex is King exhibition (an extraordinary exhibition, showcasing the first real Tyrannosaurus rex to be displayed in England for over a century).


Spectacular Elizabethan Mansion and Deer Park set in the beautiful suburbs of Nottingham.

Wollaton Hall was designed by Robert Smythson and built by Sir Francis Willoughby between 1580 and 1588 for his family. Now a prominent Grade One listed building, the stunning Hall houses the city's Natural History Museum along with reconstructed room settings.

Standing on a natural hill three miles west of Nottingham City Centre, Wollaton Hall is set in five hundred acres of spectacular gardens and parkland. The hall was used as the setting for Wayne Manor in the 2012 Batman film, Dark Knight Rises.

Entry to the Hall is with booked entry for the Titus: T. rex is King exhibition only. While visiting for the Titus: T. rex is King exhibition you are able to enjoy the Bird room, Fish room galleries on the ground floor. The Industrial Museum is temporarily closed, but is located in the Courtyard building adjacent to the Hall and has its own entrance fee. Car parking charges apply.

Things to see and do

On site, with the historic hall, visitors will find Nottingham's Natural History Museum. In addition to this there is the Camellia House and the Formal Gardens located next to the hall, and gift shops and cafés situated in the courtyard buildings under the Clock Tower. There is also the Wollaton 508 café located next to the children's play area next to the main vehicle entrance to Wollaton Hall & Deer Park via Wollaton road. All cafés serve a variety of delicious refreshments including sandwiches, cakes, hot and cold options. (dietary requirement options available).

Wollaton’s Botanic Garden

The small walled botanic garden, situated adjacent to the stable block, has been developed and cared for by volunteers from the Nottingham Branch of the Hardy Plant Society since the early 1980s. This attractive garden is open on Sundays from 2.00 - 4.00pm between April and September. Plant sales raise money to maintain the garden.

Car parking is £3 for up to 2 hours and £5 for the day.


The Park is mainly fully accessible for wheelchair users. There are designated blue badge parking spaces right in front of the Hall building (subject to time limit).  There are walkways leading to most sections in the park that are wheelchair friendly. Wollaton has toilets in 3 locations - the disabled toilets can be accessed with a radar key and there is a Changing Places toilet in the lower courtyard. The shops and café are accessible in a wheelchair. The Hall museum can be accessed via the access lift and there is an internal lift that runs between the 3 floors of the museum.  Information provided June 2015.
