Welcome to Nottingham, a vibrant friendly city – where the past and present harmonise perfectly to create a unique destination, offering something for everyone.

A Legendary Past

Nottingham has a colourful past of legend and lace and caves and castles. Beneath the bustling city streets is a unique labyrinth of man made caves, over 400 in total. The Caves of Nottingham is your chance to explore some of them including the tannery, air raid shelter and Victorian slum. Above the ground, Nottingham ccastle stands high on the city skyline.
