If you ever find yourself in the East Midlands, you might want to check out some of the attractions of Nottingham. You might not have heard much about the city but it is a popular tourist destination, and is in fact the 6th most visited city in the UK. You will of course know it as the home of the legend of Robin Hood, but there are plenty more attractions of Nottingham besides the outlaws of Sherwood Forest.
1. Nottingham Castle
Sadly, the magnificent medieval castle that features so prominently in the tales of Robin Hood no longer stands, but in its place is a ducal mansion – still called Nottingham Castle. The 17th century building is one of the major attractions of Nottingham and is home to the City’s Museum and Art Gallery. It stands on Castle Rock overlooking the city and as well as an extensive collection of art and artifacts, visitors can also learn about the original castle that was built by William the Conqueror.
