Nottingham Castle Cave Tours

About

Nottingham Castle cave tours: 12pm, 1pm, 2pm & 3pm
Taking place everyday when the castle is open

The complex network of caves hidden beneath Nottingham’s streets have had a firm influence on the fabric of the city’s history. Naturally, some of the most dramatic and well preserved tales were based around the castle quarter, and this fascinating tour lets you in on all the secrets whilst exploring behind the scenes areas of Nottingham Castle. Take a tour to experience the caves for yourself, learning on the way the gruesome tales of Roger Mortimer, King David II of Scotland or you may be able to take a tour with Robin Hood himself...

With some of the caves dating back to medieval times, the tour is strenuous with LOTS of steep steps. However, for those who wish to descend through hundreds of years the tour is a must.

Tours last for approximately 30-40 minutes.

Costs £5 per person plus normal Castle entry fee!
