Located in the East Midlands, Nottinghamshire suits English country bumpkins to city revellers alike. The traditional, and most densely populated, county town is Nottingham.
Nottingham is famously linked to writer D.H. Lawrence, romantic poet and political revolutionary Lord Byron and most notably, for Robin Hood - Nottinghamshire's most famous son. Forever associated with Nottingham and Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire's Robin Hood experience is still very much alive, with medieval banquet events, the Robin Hood Trail, Nottingham castle and the Galleries of Justice museum.
For an opportunity to escape the fast pace of city life, Nottinghamshire uniquely offers a variety of rural market towns to visit. From the heritage of the Pilgrim Fathers in the market town of Retford, to the historic town of Newark, famed for its castle and role in the English Civil War, each market town has its own cultural ground from centuries of history some of Britain's most beautiful countryside.
