Leisure Breaks / Things To Do
History & culture is in abundance, from the legend of Robin Hood, Sherwood Forest, Nottingham Castle and the city built on caves. Discover the history of the lace industry and explore the famous Lace Market District, a part of Nottingham’s Creative Quarter, a lively hub with many independent cafes, shops and the Nottingham Contemporary.
For the shoppers among you, in Nottingham City Centre you have a fantastic array of choice when it comes to indulging in a little shopping. Venturing into the heart of the city you will find many High Street favourites, local producers and high end boutiques alongside Nottingham’s very own Paul Smith – there is something to suit all tastes and budgets.
Voted England’s Home of Sport for 2016, The Nottinghamshire is perfectly located for easy access to the city’s sporting destination. Good transport links will take you directly to Trent Bridge, home to England’s famous 2016 Ashes Victory, Nottingham Forest’s City Ground and the historic Meadow Lane, home to the oldest football league team, Nott’s County. The National Watersports Centre is close by and offers a range of activities all year round.
A short drive down the A46 will lead you to the picturesque Market Towns of Melton Mowbray, Southwell, Newark and Lincoln. Steeped in history and with lots to explore, from weekly markets, the famous Pork Pie and landmarks such as Southwell Minster and Lincoln Cathedral, these are well worth a trip.
