Travel with us over 3 centuries of Crime and Punishment, reliving the lives, trials and executions of Nottingham's most infamous criminals. Voted Visitor Attraction of the Year, visitors can experience a real trial in the authentic Victorian courtroom before being sentenced and 'sent down' to the original cells and medieval caves.

Prison Warders are on hand to ensure that visitors experience life as Victorian prisoners and, of course, don't enjoy themselves too much…

In the new Police! Exhibition, experience arrest and crack the case using forensic evidence in the original Edwardian Police station located on this historic site.

A series of temporary exhibitions run throughout the year, as well as special events and children's activities throughout school holidays.
