The city of Nottingham (or Snotingham as it was known in the 11th Century!) is rich with culture, myths and lots & lots of bars…

Nottingham’s most famous resident was, of course, Robin Hood. Legend has it he was a heroic outlaw stealing from the rich to give to the poor, hiding out in The Major Oak in Sherwood Forest with his band of Merry Men. You can still visit their hide out today as well as locations linked to him around the City – Nottingham Castle, the Robin Hood statue and Edwinstowe church, where he married his beloved Maid Marion.

If legends aren’t your thing, maybe you could be tempted into one of the most haunted buildings in the UK, the Galleries of Justice. Ghost walks, tours and paranormal investigations make the Galleries a must see whilst you are in Nottingham – You may want to take your housemates for support!!

Exploring Nottingham needn’t be expensive; you can visit many of our famous landmarks for free.

Wollaton Hall and Deer Park’s prominent Grade 1 listed building is free to enter and you can look at the stunning architecture and visit Nottingham’s Natural History or walk around the grounds and deer park.  Did you know Wollaton Hall also became the home of Batman as ‘Wayne Manor’ for the 2012 film Dark Knight Rises?
