Discover the Cave Tours

Our cave tours allow you to hear the tales beneath the depths of Nottingham Castle.

This cave tour allows you to see Mortimer’s hole or King David’s Dungeon. (Subject to the cave availability on the day).

Available daily (hourly from 11 am)

Price: £5 per person

Carer: Free with each paid ticket. Please bring suitable information of being a carer at the time of visit.

This ticket is an optional ticket, in addition to the standard Castle & Grounds Admission ticket that must be purchased to visit the site.

You can pre-book your cave tour ticket in advance below.


To plan your visit and discover all facilities onsite, please see our visit page. For accessibility, please see our accessibility page.

The cave tours operate with step only access, which are steep steps of undulating terrain & varying heights, and without hand rails in some parts of the route – there is not a lift for this facility, due to the historical nature of the site.
