Deep below the familiar sights and sounds of the city of Nottingham, lose yourself in the unique and unforgettable City of Caves.

Where can I learn about underground architecture in Nottingham?

Explore a labyrinthine world's tortuous passages here in Nottingham! Witness the lives of those who found themselves living and working in a wet, gloomy, yet reassuringly safe environment.

Experience the amazing ambience of the historic tunnels dug deep beneath Nottingham’s city centre, which include WW2 air raid shelters and a mediaeval tannery.

Experience a realm beyond imagination and a genuinely remarkable adventure in history in the UK’s greatest network of caverns, with over 800 caves meticulously intersecting to create beautiful places.

For here is a site unlike any other, one that continues to draw tourists from all over the world and inspires fresh perspectives on our world.
