Attractions in Nottingham England
Nottingham is a city famous for lace and hosiery manufacturing in England, with a quaint Victorian warehouse district worth a walking tour.
While Sherwood Forest at Nottingham is now just a small collection of trees, it is worth noting, as this is the area where legendary Robin Hood stole from the rich and gave to the poor. Another essential attraction in Nottingham is the Nottingham Castle Museum, which sits upon the stately Castle Rock. The castle has a long and winding history that began in the mediaeval period. The Creswell Crags are a series of caves that were thought to have been inhabited as long as 43,000 years ago. The Galleries of Justice offers a guided tour through the 14th century English penal system. Many who visit Nottingham insist that the Galleries of Justice is an essential attraction. The Ruddington Framework Knitters' Museum is a living museum that demonstrates how the knitters in the area lived, with a series of preserved cottages.
The Nottingham Contemporary Art Gallery features modern art exhibits, a cafe, and occasional live performances. Clumber Park, which eventually links up to Sherwood Forest, offers over 3,800 acres of forest and lake lands for recreation such as hiking, walking, swimming, and cricket. Old Market Square in Nottingham offers the city's best shopping and occasional attractions such as amusement park rides, fairs, exhibitions, and open-air vendor shops.
Nottingham hotels offer a massive variety of accommodation, whether you are looking for an old quirky renovated room in the city centre, a luxurious stay, or a discount holiday to suit your particular holiday needs.
