Visited this as a combined ticket with Caves. Conducted tour was entertaining and informative. We spent a couple of hours in here and was not at all disappointed. Took advise from their website and parked in the Stoney Street car park. Discounted parking from £18 to £6.50 and was in easy reach of both attractions and the town centre. Would... More

Had our office Christmas party this year and loved every minute of it. All staff were fab and the Sheriff of Nottingham was great. Food was great and entertainment was great. The actual place itself was amazing and we got a full tour. Highly recommended.

I have been here a few times, for the actual museum and for the fright night! Both were very different experiences and good in different ways! Very educational and the fright night was a lot of fun, however it was over quite quickly.

My visit to the galleries of justice was recommended by a friend of mine and and I'm so glad I went! The staff made myself and my children feel extremely welcome and carefully explained what will happen during our visit. We must have spent a good 3 hours in there and I must say it fascinating! It was amazing to... More

This attraction is steeped in grisly history and is therefore great for kids parties! The staff were very helpful and the party room - although lacking the ambience of the rest of the building was a good size. The room is a bit of a trek when you are lugging party food and other party essentials but the staff were... More

I've been here a few times, and it's always a good place to show friends around who are visiting Nottingham. It's a fun way to learn more about the city, - and the staff there are great too! Good for all age ranges.

Hi, I organised a visit for Criminology students from the University of Wolverhampton on Friday 9 December. Everyone enjoyed their visit tremendously; the guide was excellent and really explained matters very well, and the exhibits brought crime and punishment from the mediaeval period onward extremely effectively. All of the Galleries staff were very helpful and approachable, and clearly enjoyed their... More

I actually don't like guided tours much, preferring to do my own thing when visiting attractions, but this was terrific. Greeted by the Sheriff of Nottingham and then taken on into the court room (I found myself prosecuting Robin Hood), followed by a trip down to the cells to meet the turnkey as if we were actual prisoners and then...
