A bit about Nottingham
Nottingham is a beautiful city in the East Midlands – the second largest in the county. In 2015 the city was granted ‘City of Literature’ status by UNESCO, a title it shares with only a handful of other cities. Nottingham is home to Nottingham Forest and Notts County football clubs and the world renowned folklore hero – Robin Hood and his band of merry men. Why not start your time in the city with the award winning historic Robin Hood Tour of Nottingham with the tour guide Ezekial Bone, providing an immersive experience capturing the true essence of the legendary hero. If you want an escape from the city then there’s the Robin Hood Sherwood Forest Tours which take place within the circa 1,000 acre Sherwood Forest County Park. Exploring the forest will surely keep you busy as you take in the spectacular scenic landscapes and discover the many woodland trails, be sure to pay a visit to Major Oak while you’re there!
Things to do in a day
If you tire of Robin Hood then there’s plenty more things to see and do. The Dome city hall located in the Old Market Square is the centre piece of the city. It is a spectacular building which hosts Little John – the bell with a tone that can be heard from up to 7 miles away it’ll be pretty hard to miss! For those further interested in the heritage of Nottingham then there’s Nottingham Castle and the City of Caves which pays tribute to Nottingham’s glorious underground network of sandstone caves dating back to Medieval times. For those seeking a little more culture then there’s no shortage! How about going to see a play at the Nottingham Playhouse or see a show at the Theatre Royal or Motorpoint Arena. Just on the outskirts of the city is Wollaton Hall which many of the movie buffs will recognise as Wayne Manor in the Christopher Nolan adaptation of Batman.
