Nottinghamshire is a jewel in the heart of England
Nottinghamshire is probably best known for the legend of Robin Hood and his merry men. However, the ‘Queen of the Midlands’ is also the hometown of famous poet Lord Byron and author D. H. Lawrence.
With the stunning Sherwood Forest and the deer parks, there’s plenty of opportunity for countryside walks. If history is your passion, Wollaton Hall and Newstead Abbey have exhibitions and offer tours throughout the year, while Green’s Mill and Science Centre is also a popular hotspot.
