Places to visit in Nottingham
Nottingham is steeped in historical events, and there is no better way to experience it than a guided tour. Our favourite ones are the guided cave tour of the Enchanted Well and the autumn Life in the Ice Age tour.
Why not take in the city on the tram? That’s right, Nottingham has an inner-city tram system, well-known for its cleanliness and friendly staff. Enjoy exploring the city and ditch the car, and get some great photos.
