Famed for its links with the world-renowned Robin Hood, Nottingham is a major city in the East Midlands which derived most of its wealth from lace and coal mining. Today, however, it is one a leading centre of commerce and relies mainly on service-based industries.
Things to see and do
Nottingham Castle, not actually a castle but a stately home, offers a fascinating insight into the city’s history and is well worth a look. The same can be said of the Museum of Nottingham Life and the Galleries of Justice, which show how Nottingham’s criminals have been treated down the years.
Outside of the city, the lush greenery of Sherwood Forest makes for a pleasant retreat, particularly in the summer months.
