Nottingham Tours with Great British Trips
Today Nottingham has one of the most stylish urban environments with more café-bars and elegant restaurants than any city of the same size. Despite its modern sophistication, history is never far away, with many reminders of Nottingham's legendary hero Robin Hood and his historic adversary the Sheriff of Nottingham. The Sheriff of Nottingham still has an important role in 21st century civic life, working alongside the Lord Mayor to represent the city. The city is also famous for its lace shops and factories which were internationally renowned following the industrial revolution. Among Nottingham's important historical sites and features are its unique labyrinth of caves under the city, the splendid mansion that is now Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery, and the spot where Charles I raised his standard to begin the English Civil War.
