WIN an exclusive break in Nottinghamshire

1. A Grand Tour for Two

Create your very own Grand Tour on a cultural break exploring Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.
The Grand Tour is a new cultural experience launching in summer 2015, and we’re offering one lucky winner the chance to take part in the tour, encompassing stately homes, modern art and classic masterpieces.

Visitors are invited to emulate the European adventures of the aristocracy in the 17th and 18th centuries, creating their own Grand Tour to enjoy the landscapes, country houses, gardens, cities and towns of both counties.

It’s the perfect excuse to book a short break to catch up on the area’s rich cultural history and landscapes – including both privately-owned works that have not been seen in public before and specially commissioned exhibitions.
