Tourist attractions of Nottinghamshire    by Ben Binding

Nottingham Featured Hotels

Right in the heart of England this county of myths and legend, vibrant cities, ancient woodlands, beautifully countryside and historical sites are all waiting to be discovered. 
Sherwood Forest the legendary home of Robin Hood is one of Nottinghamshire's top tourist attractions. Packed with top cultural and family activities and some of the county's best food suppliers, there is something for everyone in this historical area. Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre and the famous Major Oak, supposed headquarters to Robin and his merry men, are great places to start your tour of Sherwood where you can take the Robin Hood audio trail. One of the best times for families to visit is during the Robin Hood Festival, held each year in the first week of August.

At the time of Robin Hood, Sherwood once covered all of Nottinghamshire but nowadays it has been reduced to around 165 square miles (423 square kilometre) surrounding the village of Edwinstowe.

Nott's principle city is Nottingham. It's a vibrant city and one of the country leading shopping detinations, consistently ranked in the top 5 shopping destinations in The UK and is packed with high street stores, designer labels and a growing line of independent boutiques.

At the heart of the city is the Old Market Square. The recent multimillion pound refurbishment of the Square has created one of Europe's largest market places - on a par with many public spaces in Europe. The centrepiece of the square is the Council House, which is guarded faithfully the lions. Many events are held in the square throughout the year including open air concerts, festivals and a popular monthly fine food market. Nottingham is a city of contrast, a busy commercial and retail centre by day and by night a haven for culture, music and entertainment. The Royal Centre has played host to some of the best acts in the world with the likes of the Bolshoi ballet having performed here. The Royal Shakespeare Society will be returning this year as will the Hallé as part of the orchestra's 150th birthday. While Trent FM Arena hosts global icons such as The Foo Fighters and Bob Dylan.
