Nottingham - land of Robin Hood
Nottingham is well known for the legend of Robin Hood and no visit is complete without a visit to the famous Robin Hood statue which lies just outside Nottingham Castle. A short walk from here brings you to Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, reportedly the oldest inn in England. Indeed, you may need some refreshment before hitting the many shops - of which there are over 1300 outlets with two large shopping centres, the Broadmarsh Centre and The Victoria Centre. Nottingham is centred around the second largest Market Square in the UK, the originally titled 'Old Market Square'. It makes a great meeting place and is a venue for many local events and celebrations. Nottingham is also famous for the annual Goose Fair, this is one of the biggest fairs in the UK and is held each year in October.
