City of Caves (Tigguo Cobauc), Nottingham

3.9
#3 of 13 in Parks in Nottingham
Discover an ancient, subterranean world at City of Caves (Tigguo Cobauc). Explore this labyrinth of caves that stretch under the busy city streets with actor-led tours or wander through at your own pace with an audio tour. Learn about how these caves were used as 17th-century dwellings, cellars, and even World War II air-raid shelters. Uncover the basement of the Drury Hill slums, all that remains of one of 19th-century Britain’s worst slums. To ensure a place on a guided tour, book in advance as they do sell out. The floor of the caves is uneven in places, so sensible footwear is a must.

  • Good tour- interesting history of use of caves through the times- tour guide very good and excellent banter with group- both adults and teenagers
  • Very educational and eye opening into the history of Nottingham. Would recommend it to anyone. Some people moaning about the price, but it's part of the history of the city. It needs to be preserved and maintained.
  • Very fun and educational, especially loved the actors acting out the different time periods of the caves! Really recommend going!
  • We enjoyed our visit to the caves. Good tour guides and interesting talks. The guides make it fun so it kept out little boy interested. The tour its self was about an hour. Worth a visit.
  • Very well organized tour with funny guides. It took roughly 45minutes. Worth visiting
