Nottingham is one of the UK’s favourite city-break destinations thanks to its rich history, great shopping and lively nightlife. Famous for its long association with Robin Hood, Nottingham boasts a clutch of major museums and art galleries as well as theatres, music and sporting venues. The City of Caves – a honeycomb of sandstone chambers carved underneath the city showcasing Nottingham’s immensely rich history - is a must-see. The city’s best bars, restaurants and shops can be found in the trendy Lace Market, an area named after the city’s booming lace trade in the 18th century.
