Somewhat confusingly, the entrance to the City of Caves is on the upper floor of the Broadmarsh Shopping Centre.
It is part of a complex of over 500 caves under Nottingham which date back to the Dark Ages. The city of has more man-made caves than anywhere else in Britain
as the soft Sherwood Sandstone allowed hand-carved cellars to be excavated and used as store rooms, factories, pub cellars, dwellings
and even a tannery that was in use from 1500–1640.
Later during the Second World War the caves were used as air raid shelters.
For opening times, admission prices, etc. please see the official site detailed below.
