|WHY VISIT NOTTINGHAMSHIRE?|
|For a holiday with a difference, try Nottinghamshire. Situated in the East Midlands of England, the area offers beautiful walks with spectacular panoramic views of the countryside.

Easily accessible by car, the area has become a popular tourist destination. Nottingham is the capital city and there’s something to do for every member of the family. |
Nottingham is known as the Queen of the Midlands and is delightful even in the rain. The city centre is very compact and it’s easy to walk from one tourist site to the next. Pick up brochures and maps at the Information Centre in the City Hall. They will tell you where to go and give a brief account of Nottingham’s history.
Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, the oldest inn in England, sits in the shadow of Nottingham Castle. Dating back to 1189, today it’s a pub with a wonderful atmosphere. There are many tunnels, caves and secret passages that lead from the inn into the castle.
It is believed that Robin Hood, England’s most colourful folk hero, came from Nottinghamshire. During the days of King John, the legendary Robin and his band of Merry Men robbed the rich to feed the poor. Many exciting stories tell us of their adventures in Sherwood Forest. If you visit Nottingham in October, there’s usually a pageant in the castle grounds. This is a spectacular four-day event where the entertainers dress up in clothes similar to those that people wore 1,000 years ago.
The Tales of Robin Hood is an interactive museum where visitors sitting in cable cars are taken to a simulated Sherwood Forest. Flying arrows, ferocious wolves and the Sheriff of Nottingham are there to frighten us all. But we know that Robin Hood and his Merry Men will save us in the end. And if you think that the museum is not for you, how about a candlelit banquet at the Sheriff’s Lodge? A five-course meal with entertainment is provided and everyone has to dress up in authentic Robin Hood costume.
You can make your stay in Nottingham even more memorable if you explore the unique labyrinth of caves under the city, visit the many museums and galleries and participate in a walking Ghost Tour one evening. Nottingham is the capital of an area that’s proud of its past, and there’s a lot to offer in the city and in the surrounding area for adults and children alike.
