Nottingham

— 4 nights

Queen of the Midlands

With its historic connection to the legend of Robin Hood, Nottingham is a vibrant blend of medieval and modern.
Venture out of the city with trips to Sherwood Pines (in Mansfield), Clumber Park (in Worksop) and Southwell (Southwell Minster & The Workhouse, Southwell). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Wollaton Hall and Park, indulge in some personalized pampering at Aqua Sana Sherwood Forest, explore the historical opulence of Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St Peter's Church.
