Your next great adventure in Nottingham and Sherwood Forest


Experience Nottingham and Sherwood Forest for cracking weekend breaks in England’s historic heartland. Stay in a cosy rural retreat and enjoy the freedom of exploring our country parks, or indulge in a luxury stay at a boutique hotel for great shopping with unrivalled drinking and dining.

Right across the city and county you’ll find scenic holiday cottages, quaint B&Bs and great value hotels that are perfect for families and couples taking weekend breaks to discover the local attractions and countryside. You can also seek out a truly authentic outdoors experience and enjoy camp sites in and around Sherwood Forest.

Take a stroll through Clumber Park and unravel Nottinghamshire’s connections to the English nobility in the Dukeries. Visit caves dating back to the Ice Age at Creswell Crags. Cycle the length and breadth of Sherwood Forest off road. Take the family for a great day out at Wheelgate Theme Park or Sundown Adventureland.

Whether it’s excitement, adventure or a relaxing well earned break, our countryside attractions and places to stay will leave you invigorated and refreshed.

Enjoy a weekend city break in Nottingham and rediscover the Robin Hood legend at Nottingham Castle and the Galleries of Justice Museum. Be inspired by the glorious gardens in the former home of Lord Byron at Newstead Abbey. And if you feel brave enough, you could even join in one of the weekly ghost tours that uncover Nottingham’s grizzly past which make it one of the UK’s most haunted cities.
