Getting into Nottingham by Train

Nottingham, a large university city in the East Midlands, is famous for its connection to the Robin Hood legends. To pursue Robin Hood through the city be sure to visit Nottingham Castle, stopping to take a photo next to the statue of the famous outlaw in front before heading to Sherwood Forest, the legendary home of Robin Hood and his gang. If architecture is more your thing, wander through the historic Lace Market for a sampling of the variety of beautiful architecture that can be found in the city. During your stay, be sure to have a drink at the oldest pub in England, Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, which claims to have served Crusaders as they departed to the holy land. Nottingham is also home to the grand Elizabethan Wollaton Hall & Deer Park which houses the city's Natural History Museum. Nottingham is also a major cultural city with its Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall and the Lakeside Arts Center in the grounds of the University.
