Learn about crime and punishment with Madame Parboiled

Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

Experience medieval crime and punishment with Madame Parboiled, as she walks you through Nottingham’s caves and scenes of gruesome torture.


As a city of caves, it would not be a true visit to the city without a journey through Nottingham’s historic caves.

Join Madame Parboiled as she beheads her way through Nottingham’s history. As a Medieval Nottingham Castle worker, Madame Parboiled has seen things that would disgust even those with the strongest of stomachs.

She will inform you all about crime and punishment over the city’s history, its role within medieval Nottingham and even provide you with a demonstration if you’re unlucky!

It’s a tour that engages everyone, from small children right up to adults, and is an essential historical experience when visiting Nottingham and its caves.
