Attractions & activities

The Lace Market area

Nottingham is famous for its lace-making industry. The Lace Market area is now very trendy, full of bars and restaurants in a unique setting since the buildings are largely unchanged from those constructed to accommodate the booming 18th-century lace industry.

Nottingham castle

The castle stands on a promontory overlooking Nottingham and offers picturesque views of the city and surrounding area.

Today, the castle is home to a museum that has a beautiful collection of silver and gold items, armour and paintings. The art galleries display works from regional, national and international artists.

Sherwood Forest and the legend of Robin Hood

Sherwood Forest is known around the world and associated with the legend of Robin Hood. It is a dense forest of birch and oaks, and its most notable tree is the legendary Major Oak, which, according to local folklore, was the main shelter for Robin Hood and his merry men. This oak tree is thought to be about 800 to 1,000 years old. Follow one of the many footpaths criss-crossing the vast forest to discover the varied landscapes and to walk in the footsteps of Robin Hood.                            

Wollaton Hall

The location for the filming of scenes for the Batman film "The Dark Knight", Wollaton Hall is a magnificent country house dating from the English Renaissance, and considered to be an architectural work of art. The Hall houses the Nottingham Natural History Museum and the thousands of specimens that make up its zoology, geology and botany collections.
