More about Nottingham
Nottingham is a lively city full of things to do. Rock City is one of the city’s most well-known stages for live gigs, with a huge 2000 capacity theatre. It’s joined by many other exciting entertainment venues in Nottingham like the Royal Concert Hall, first performed in by Elton John in 1982, and the Nottingham Playhouse. The Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem, reputed to be the oldest pub in the country, is a very popular pub with a great selection of craft ales in a rustic, authentic setting.
Nottingham is the home of Nottingham Forest FC and one of the oldest football clubs in the world, Notts County FC – Nottingham Forest’s City Ground and Notts County’s Meadow Lane stadium are on either sides of the River Trent. Nottinghamshire Cricket Club, first formed in 1771 and winner of the County Championship on over a dozen occasions, are based at Trent Bridge, only a short walk from City Ground.
The picturesque Elizabethan mansion, Wollaton Hall, is also the site of one of Nottingham’s most fascinating museums: the Nottingham Natural History Museum, an eclectic exhibit of over 750,000 fossils, plants and preserved taxidermy from rare specimens across the world. You can also find brilliant displays at the Museum of Nottingham Life and the Nottingham Industrial Museum, plus many more great museums across Nottingham.
Outside of Nottingham city centre you can find great views of the River Trent and boat tours along Victoria Embankment, The Meadows Recreation Ground and Memorial Gardens. There are also great natural spaces like Nottingham’s Arboretum, a sprawling country park with a lake and hundreds of trees and the City of Caves, a network of over 500 sandstone caves hidden deep beneath the city.
Of course, no visit to Nottingham would be complete without a trip to the Robin Hood Experience. Relive the timeless tale of the kind-hearted rogue who stole from the rich and gave to the poor as you journey back through medieval Britain, thanks to the magic of holograms and other amazing interactive exhibits.
