There is so much to do at Wollaton Hall & Deer Park a family could easily spend the whole day here. Located just outside the city (catch NCT 30 bus from Victoria Centre) Wollaton Hall is set in picturesque gardens and parkland.

  • The Hall

    The striking Elizabethan architecture and stunning interiors of Wollaton Hall have been wonderfully restored. If you can we would recommend joining one of the guided tours but if you prefer to take your time exploring there are some insightful audio-visual interpretations to enjoy as you follow the route through the rooms, salons and kitchens.
  • Natural History Museum

    Situated within the hall is the Nottingham Natural History Museum containing some astounding specimens from geology, botany and zoology.
  • Industrial & Transport Museum

    Situated in the stables and outbuildings of the original hall, the Industrial Museum includes working steam and barn engines, miniature fairground, 1940’s telephone exchange and working blacksmiths. The last Sunday of every month (please visit their site to reconfirm dates) are Sunday Steaming Events when the engines are bought to life and you can experience the power of steam.
  • Wollaton Deer Park

    Watching the herds of red and fallow deer freely roaming through the parkland is an amazing sight.
