Discover a city and county full of surprises

Nottinghamshire's heritage is rich and varied. Our heroes are legendary and our innovations have helped change the world.

You can explore the woodlands and parkland that inspired DH Lawrence and Lord Byron, follow in the footsteps of the legendary Robin Hood, or discover more about the influential Pilgrim Fathers. Perhaps research your family tree and tread the land where your ancestors once lived or worked.

Nottingham was designated as a Science City in 2005 in recognition of its rich scientific heritage, industrial base and role as a leading research centre.  Having two universities the city certainly is a capital for learning.
