Nottingham is a prominent English tourist destination, home to quite a few major historical sites, activity centres, and beautiful parks. Here are six places you can’t miss when you visit the city of Nottingham.
This grandiose structure dates back to 1067, built by Norman the Conqueror. Though it has been reconstructed several times since then, it remains an impressive site, offering views overlooking the entire city. It is a major part of Nottingham’s history, contributing to both British and European medieval art. It’s a great way to get away from the city and learn a little bit about history.
Flying Horse Walk Shopping Centre
Back in the heart of the city, this expansive plaza houses a variety of small shops that sell everything from designer clothing to craft beer. There are so many things to discover, and if you are one who enjoys happening upon lucky finds, this is the place for you. There’s even a bridal shop where you just may find the dress! There’s something for everyone at this wide-ranging shopping arcade.
This historical edifice is probably the most recognized landmark in Nottingham. It dates back to the 19th century, so it definitely isn’t a modern building. Being a religious structure meant for praise and worship, it was designed very intricately, with a lot of attention to detail. There are often events here, from mass choir concerts to solo religious music. It is a beautiful place for visitors to get a little bit in touch with their spiritual sides and take in the serenity.
Rushcliffe Country Park
This is another lovely place to get away from the bustling city. There are close to ten kilometres of paths, grass, trees, and landscaped areas for people to enjoy. You could come get in a little bit of exercise and watch the joggers, dog walkers, and cyclists go by. If you aren’t in the mood for active exercise, you can also watch the sun go down over the lake in the comfortable seating area provided. If you’ve got kids, feel free to bring them along - they are sure to enjoy the playgrounds.
The Nottingham Playhouse is a world-famous theatre located right in the middle of Nottingham. It introduces a great number of events every year, from dance and drama to comedy and music. It has been a major Nottingham attraction for over fifty years, and tourists flock there daily. It is more modern than many of the other attractions on this list, and it’s the perfect way to spend an enthralling night.
When the name says “adrenaline,” they really mean it! There are a great number of activities for kids and adults alike, spanning from archery to an assault course!
