City of Caves consists of a network of caves, carved out of sandstone that have been variously used over the years as a tannery, public house cellars, and as an air raid shelter. Nottingham sits upon a soft sandstone ridge which can easily be dug with simple hand tools to create artificial cave dwellings. The caves here are some of the oldest remaining in the city, with pottery finds dating them to 1270-1300, and were inhabited from at least the 17th century until 1845.
Nottingham Castle a magnificent 17th century ducal mansion built on the site of the original Medieval Castle. Now the city's main museum and art gallery. Situated on a high rock, it commands spectacular views over the city and once rivalled the great castles of Windsor and the Tower of London. Its history is chequered with sieges, murders and intrigue. Totally destroyed after the Civil War, the medieval castle was replaced by a magnificent ducal mansion in 1674. Then in 1875 it was converted into the first municipal museum and art gallery outside London.
