Love Local

If you’d like to explore market towns and local markets, discover traditional events and festivals, and sample delicious local food and drink, in Nottinghamshire we serve it up for you on a plate.

Take a tour of Newark, Workshop, Southwell or Edwinstowe, delightful market towns each with their own special appeal.  Georgian Newark, by the side of the River Trent, and visit traditional markets in its old market square, where you can find anything from antiques to fresh farm produce. 

Worksop is home to 1920s time capsule ‘Mr Straw’s House’, and Edwinstowe is Robin Hood’s village – the man in tights is said to have wed Maid Marion in the historic church here. Stunning Southwell boasts Nottinghamshire’s grand cathedral, Southwell Minster, and is also home to the much-loved Bramley Apple.

Seek out local traditions and heritage.  Stop by the Wellow Maypole Festival, where each May Day, the village of Wellow comes to life with traditional English celebrations, enjoy the Bramley Apple Festival at Southwell or join the ‘merry men’ at the annual Robin Hood Festival.  Simply relax and enjoy the true taste of Nottinghamshire, from traditional bramley apple pie, stilton and stichelton cheese to award winning restaurants, local produce, and the Nottingham Real Ale Trail, which highlights 14 of the best drinking holes in the city, with a focus on their real ale.

What’s more, we’re home to the oldest pub in England, Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem; the Bell Inn, a favoured watering hole of Lord Byron; and the Canal House pub, which has a canal running through it, and a bridge to get to the bar.

That’s why in Nottingamshire we love our local produce, traditions, food and drink. 


We’re sure you will too.
