Nottingham - The City
Among a number of local legends from Nottinghamshire are literary geniuses Lord Byron and D.H Lawrence. International fashion designer Paul Smith set up his flagship store in the heart of the city where he was born, and Jesse Boot established his first chemist store ‘Boots’ in Nottingham, which soon became a household name across Britain.
Robin Hood, the world’s most notorious outlaw, has also awarded the city international fame, and if you are a fan of the hero who stole from the rich to give to the poor, there are many Robin Hood related things to see and do in Nottingham.
Nottinghamshire’s castles, caves and cathedrals are just the start of the county’s cultural heritage. Nottingham was once the world capital of lace production during the 18th and 19th century. The area famous for lace production – The Lace Market – is now a protected heritage site boasting stunning examples of industrial architecture from the 1700's.
Scattered along the cobbled streets are also some of Nottingham’s most popular bars, restaurants and shops.
