About

Mortimer's Hole Cave Tour
Saturday 6 - Tuesday 9 April 2019 | 10am, 11am, 12 noon, 2pm, 3pm
Tickets: £5

Beneath Nottingham Castle, a labyrinth of manmade caves and tunnels continue to tell the turbulent story of this historic site. Enjoy a memorable tour discovering the secret passageway named Mortimer’s Hole, and hear tales from the site's 1000 years of history. This is a unique opportunity to access some of the caves under Nottingham Castle, which is currently closed for re-development.

The meeting point for tours will be at the gates to Brewhouse Yard Museum, adjacent to the Trip to Jerusalem pub. Please be aware that the tour is strenuous with LOTS of steep steps. As the Castle site is closed for re-development, access to Mortimer's Hole will be from Brewhouse Yard grounds only. The ascent up the tunnel to the top of Castle Rock is very strenuous and visitors will have to be physically fit to participate. Sensible footwear must also be worn. N.B. For visitors who are unable to participate in this tour a Virtual Reality experience of Mortimer's Hole is available throughout the Caves Festival at the Urban Room, 38 Carrington Street. 20 max per tour.

 

In celebration of Nottingham’s 800 caves, #CaveCity invites you to explore this mysterious terrain which has lain beneath the city for hundreds of years. With tours, talks, activities and experiences throughout the city, including some of the city's lesser known cave locations, please visit the Cave City: Nottingham Underground Festival page for a full list of events, or check out the festival itinerary to plan your weekend
