Nottingham is a city that attracts a lot of visitors and with that, there are a lot of attractions and tourist hot spots. This blog is a list of places to go to if you’re traveling to Nottingham and looking for something to do.
Wollaton Hall and Park
Wollaton Hall is one of the county’s finest Grade One listed Elizabethan-styled mansions. In addition to being a stunning piece of architecture, Wollaton Hall is an encouraged resource for historical figures and academic research due to its critical role in English history. It’s also a stately home with a dedicated events program that includes exhibition spaces, an array of wildlife and plenty of special guided tours. The costumed tours run on certain dates at specific times, where visitors get a chance to walk about the property wearing old fashioned clothing alongside other costumed visitors from across the country.
Climbing Green’s Windmill is a unique experience not to be missed. Let the kids have fun in digital age kid’s science centre, whilst you climb up to see how their sails turn grain into flour in not just one but two working watermills, which are an English Heritage site. Come visit on your trip back in time at Mill Race Park and step out of the 21st century for a moment into history – the past lives again!
