Nottinghamshire is a popular destination for large group holidays in the UK and that’s not surprising because it’s a county with everything – the countryside is beautiful with views that roll on for miles, there are towns to browse, picturesque villages to amble around, scores of attractions to visit, and heaps of history to discover.
Explore Sherwood Forest, famous for its associations with Robin Hood, see the mighty oak tree where England’s best known outlaw hid out with his band of merry men. Go walking or cycling on the trails and paths, whizz through the tree tops at Go Ape Sherwood Pines. Get outdoors at Rufford Abbey Country Park and Clumber Park, see the network of caves at Creswell Crags.
Spend a day in Nottingham with its exciting shopping scene, bars and restaurants, ancient castle and City of Caves; visit quiet market towns like Newark with its National Civil War Museum and Southwell where the Minster is known for its intricate nature carvings, the Leaves of Southwell. See England’s last open field village at Laxton and the church where Robin Hood and Maid Marion were married at Edwinstowe. Take the kids to Sherwood Forest Fun Park and White Post Farm Centre, visit the stately homes and castles – Bolsover Castle is a must, Newstead Abbey was once the home of Romantic poet, Lord Byron. Step back to the 1920s at Mr Straw’s House in Worksop or The Workhouse and Infirmary near Southwell. Lots to inspire, memories to be made; happy times await you on your large group stay in Nottinghamshire.
