A Guide to Exploring Nottinghamshire On a UK Short Break
Below the city of Nottingham are many man-made sandstone caves which are well worth a visit. There are a number of locations where they can be accessed, with a particularly interesting section under one of the local shopping centres, which houses caves dating back to the Dark Ages.
Still in the city, a place well worth a stop (and a relaxing drink) is Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem Inn. This public house is claimed to be the oldest inn in England and local legend has it that this where the knights stopped on their way to the crusades. Today, the Trip retains its striking black and white exterior, and its location, next to the castle and historical centre of Nottingham, makes it an ideal spot for a light lunch.
For the sports enthusiasts, Nottingham has some well-known names. For football fans there are two teams: Notts County, the oldest football league club in the world, and Nottingham Forest, two-time winner of the European Championship, both of which are located in the city.
The world famous Trent Bridge Cricket Ground is next to Nottingham Forest and the River Trent which flows through the county. Finally, the new Ice Stadium is right in the city centre where Torvill and Dean used to practice on their way to winning Olympic Gold.
The shire itself has plenty to keep the visitor happy. If you are a Robin Hood fan, make a trip to the Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre to learn some more about the local legend. In the same area are some great houses including Newstead Abbey (famous for being the former home of Lord Byron), which has some beautiful gardens.
Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve contains some of the oldest trees in Europe, veteran oaks five centuries old and the world-famous Major Oak, still producing acorns after standing at the heart of the forest for an estimated 800 years!
Nottinghamshire is an often-overlooked county for visitors to the UK, but there is plenty to see and do in this land-locked county which makes it well worth the trip in or out of the school holidays.
