With its beautiful countryside, picturesque towns and villages and peaceful country parks, it’s no surprise that Nottinghamshire is a haven for walkers. Whether you are a keen hiker who wants to base your holiday around a challenging multi-stage walk or you simply want to take a relaxing afternoon stroll with a coffee stop on the way, we have plenty of inspiration for you.
Please note: some of the attractions may charge to use the car park.
There is no better way to explore Nottinghamshire’s countryside than on foot. Many of our attractions have self-guided trails including Attenborough Nature Reserve, Vicar Water, Clumber Park and Rufford Abbey.
A waterside walk is the perfect way to spend an afternoon and the villages along Nottinghamshire's rivers and canals are ideal if you want to break up your walk.
The pretty village of Gunthorpe lies on the banks of the River Trent and is particularly popular with walkers on a warm summer’s evening. Finish your walk with a visit to Tom Brown’s Brasserie or Pontefino’s.
Or why not explore the beautiful riverside area of Farndon near Newark? Start your walk at the Chapel Lane car park (grid reference SK768521) and look out for St Peter’s Church, which dates back to Elizabethan times. Farndon Boathouse is the perfect place for lunch, dinner or a drink while you are out exploring.
