So I’m off to Nottingham. Including maps, I have a 19 page document of stuff to do/checkout. Probably won’t get to all of it but it’s there just in case. Scroll down for all the info. Downloadable PDFs (I separated the infosheet from the maps for easy reference) are available at the very end of the post.

Enter and explore a whole new world in the caves underneath Nottingham city and descend
into the dark depths of the original Anglo-Saxon tunnels, meeting real cave-dwellers from its dramatic hidden past. See how these caves have been used and adapted over the Centuries by
local people to escape and take refuge from the world above.

The Museum of Nottingham Life at Brewhouse Yard is housed within five 17th century cottages where you can learn about the people of Nottingham through the objects made, used or owned and the stories they tell us.
This delightful museum is sited in Brewhouse Yard at the base of Castle Rock, a location that itself reveals much about Nottingham’s social history. The museum depicts the social history of Nottingham over the last 300 years and is housed in five 17th century cottages adjacent to the famous ‘Trip to Jerusalem’ public house. Brewhouse Yard once contained a thriving community of 20 houses, with a population of 127 people at its peak. Today the surviving buildings house the museum and contain a mixture of reconstructed room and shop settings, and gallery displays including ‘Toys’ and ‘Community Showcase’ which highlights work by local groups or individuals.
In the adjacent Rock Cottage is a reconstructed Victorian Schoolroom and a new exhibition ‘Growing up in Nottingham’. Also discover a system of man-made caves built into the rock. Once used by the former residents, they now house museum displays including a reconstructed air raid shelter, and are fully wheelchair accessible.

England’s history of crime and punishment is a shocking one. As are the sinister and grim stories of Nottingham’s own outlaws which are brought to life in the building where they were judged, imprisoned and executed.
To capture and explain this grim and gruesome history, we use actors, audio guides, guide
sheets & boards, lighting, sounds, set dressing and exhibitions. Our aim is to educate and entertain and inform everyone who comes through our doors.
As well as the museum we also run the ‘City of Caves’ attraction in Nottingham’s Broadmarsh Centre.
We are the only museum of its kind in Europe! We preserve the site of Nottinghamshire’s old courthouse and county gaol as well as maintaining a vast collection of spine chilling artifacts relating to crime and punishment over the last three centuries.
We are an independent museum, and a charity as part of The Egalitarian Trust and this means we rely upon admission charges, fundraising and providing corporate hospitality.
