Nottinghamshire is best known for its most celebrated son- legendary folk hero Robin Hood. Although only the restored gatehouse and some foundations remain of Nottingham Castle, it’s impossible not to get swept away by the romance and history of the area. No visit to Nottinghamshire could be complete without spending some time in Sherwood Forest, Robin Hood’s former stomping ground.
Nottinghamshire isn’t all just about history, though– there’s plenty to keep you occupied once you tire of castles and folklore. Nottingham is known as the Queen of the Midlands and is one of the top ten most visited cities in Britain. As well as fantastic shopping opportunities, Nottingham reputedly has more restaurants, bars and pubs per square mile than any other city in Europe, making it a perfect destination for foodies. Meander around the region’s market towns enjoying superb local produce, or visit Michelin-starred delights like Sat Bains for a special occasion.
