The Best Places to Stay in the UK

Nottinghamshire

Shaped rather like a pendulous earring, the county of Nottinghamshire stretches north from the rolling fields of the Nottinghamshire Wolds as far as the harsher, tougher scenery bordering South Yorkshire. The prime attraction is the county town, Nottingham, a vibrant, bustling city of around 350,000 with a flourishing art scene, top–quality restaurants and a boisterous nightlife. At heart, Nottingham is a modern city, but its castle – which was burnt down long ago – was once one of England’s prime fortifications and there are other hints of the city’s long past, most notably St Mary’s church.  North of Nottingham, the county was parcelled up into large estates, and today you will find delightful  Newstead Abbey, where Lord Byron was temporarily resident,  the Welbeck estate, home to the charming Harley Art Gallery, and the extensive woodlands of Clumber Park. Northeast of Nottingham, the obvious targets are Southwell, with its splendid Minster, and Newark, a good–looking county town with a ruined castle.
