Brewhouse Yard Caves   Situated at the base of Castle Rock and housed in five 17th century cottages the the Musuem of Nottingham life at Brewhouse Yard offers an insight into Nottingham’s social history over the last 300 years.  Behind the museum is a system of man made caves which were lived in until the late 1970s.  One of the caves was used as an air raid shelter during World War II and the museum displays  reflect the 1940s theme. The Brewhouse Yard caves can be accessed via the musuem.  Details of opening times and entrance fees can be found by visiting their website here When standing outside the museum looking up towards the castle a number of rock cut dwellings can be seen cut in to the sansdstone.
