Shire Hall Caves   Nottingham’s Shire Hall is in the Lace Market area of Nottingham on High Pavement, and is now home to the Galleries of Justice Museum.  Details of opening times and entrance fees for the museum can be found by visiting their website here The Shire Hall as we see it now was built in 1770.  The previous Shire Hall building had become so dilapitated it was demolished.  Beneath the Shire Hall lies a system of caves, partly medieval in date, which for hundreds of years were used to house some of Nottingham’s criminals.
