Nottingham

TraveLibro United Kingdom Nottingham Featured City
Sleepy market towns, historical sites, golden fields, the vibrant music and pumping clubs—this blend of times is magically enlivened with stories of Robin Hood. Head to this lovely city of Nottingham in Nottinghamshire and explore its cultural and literary heritage. Recently it was listed as a UNESCO City of Literature among the only 12 in the world. Visit the Nottingham Castle to marvel at the city views it offers and the bronze statues of Robin Hood; take a tour of Mortimer’s Hole, a cave located directly below the castle, check out the D H Lawrence Heritage and explore the Robin Hood Way and the Sherwood Forest to dip into the essence of the legendary character. While the museums and galleries of the city are interesting, a boat ride at the lush 121 acre Highfields Park is relaxing. The zest of youth adds a pulsating streak to the city’s character, making it a perfect getaway.

As per legend, crusaders stopped here on their way to the Holy Land and had one for the road - hence the name. Take a step back in time and enjoy some traditional English ale in the beer courtyard here.
