GO Places in Nottingham

One of the most impressive sights is hidden underneath the city’s quaint streets, but you can catch a glimpse of the unique man-made caves at the City of Caves exhibition [map]. The highlights here include an air-raid shelter and a Victorian slum dwelling.

Nottingham is also packed to bursting with architecture such as St Mary's Church [map] on High Pavement, one of the finest medieval buildings in the city, and Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem [map], which has been is carved out of the castle rock and is the oldest pub in England.

On the outskirts of Nottingham there's Wollaton Hall [map], a fine example of Tudor architecture dating back to 1588, and Green's Mill [map], a fully operational windmill and science centre.

Those hoping to learn about the city’s lace industry should head to the visitors centre at the Lace Market Centre [map] or the Lace Centre [map], a medieval building where you can see and buy lace.

For a walk in the country get along to Sherwood Forest Country Park [map], where you’ll find the historic Major Oak that Robin Hood is said to have hidden in.

Also out of town is the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum [map] in Eastwood, a heritage centre dedicated to the writer’s life housed in his old home, and the magnificent Newstead Abbey [map] at Ravenshead, the former home of Lord Byron set in 200 acres of parkland.

Back in the city centre you can come face to face with some of the city’s ghosts and ghouls by heading out on the Nottingham Ghost and Pub Tour [map], which starts at the Salutation Inn.

Another crowd puller in the evenings is the medieval banquet at the Sheriff's Lodge [map] on Canal Street, where you even get the chance to dress up in traditional attire.
