Nottingham Castle Cave Tours

About

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.


Please Note: Due to a fantastic £29.8m Heritage Lottery Funded grant, Nottingham Castle and caves will be closed from 1st July 2018 until 2020. Please visit the Nottingham Castle website for updates and information and check out our page on Nottingham's caves for more underground activities and attractions!
