Watch out for Robin Hood!

Explore legends, the great outdoors in Sherwood Forest and find out the truth about Robin Hood and medieval England. Learn how Nottingham was the centre of the lace industry during the industrial revolution. Nottinghamshire has a rich and varied history, with many unexpected delights just waiting to be discovered. There is lots to explore from Ice Age art in the caves at Creswell Crags to a whole host of trails around the city.

Visit the National Justice Museum which is based in the old courthouse and gaol. There is no better way to explore the gruesome history of crime and punishment other than with one of their tours. In the evening take in a show at Nottingham Playhouse which has a Kid’s Theatre.

Day 2

Sitting high on Castle Rock is Nottingham Castle, the impressive 17th Century ducal mansion which is now a museum. It houses beautiful works from around the world and you can enjoy a tour which takes you into the labyrinth of secret caves and tunnels underground.

Continue the underground theme with a tour of the 500 manmade sandstone caves below Broadmarsh Shopping Centre. They house and assortment of tanneries, bomb shelters and homes. You have a choice of a guided tour or an audio tour.

Day 3

Spend the day at Wollaton Hall & Deer Park.  Set within a 500-acre deer park, Wollaton Hall is a spectacular Elizabethan mansion set within a 500-acre deer park.  You may recognise it as Wayne Manor from “The Dark Knight Rises” Batman film.
