The only museum of its kind in Europe, home to the Villainous Sheriff of Nottingham and the only venue where you can discover Nottingham’s horrible history! They have preserved the site of Nottinghamshire’s old Courthouse and County Gaol as well as maintaining a vast collection of spine chilling artefacts relating to Crime and Punishment over the last three centuries. Also a free Robin Hood exhibition on site where you can learn all about Nottingham’s most famous outlaw!
Tours at the Galleries of Justice take place twice an hour. Meet there at 12.30 pm with a view to going on the 1pm tour. There is a small exhibition to look at whilst we are waiting for the tour. The guided tour lasts about 45 minutes and there is more to look at after that.
Depending on numbers, I may try to reserve a place on the 1pm tour in advance, as in busy periods they cannot guarantee places for each slot and we may have to wait a while for enough free spaces, if there are a lot of us.
Please be aware that due to the nature of the building, in some parts of the tours there will be low ceilings, uneven floors and many steps. Flat shoes are advisable.
Performance Tours cost £9.50
For those travelling from Derby, we will meet at Derby Bus Station and catch the 11.30am Red Arrow to Nottingham.
