Are there any enjoyable activities for me outside working hours in Nottingham?
Spend time sightseeing the historic buildings of the city interspersed with local shopping streets and cafés. Enjoy a relaxing business lunch in one of the city’s many restaurants or one of the quaint, and often historic, pubs including Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem, possibly the oldest inn in England. Explore the legend of Robin Hood in the town by his statue at Nottingham Castle. Hire a bicycle to explore the narrower streets of the city out in the fresh air. Should there be no pool available at your hotel, make use of the many gyms throughout the city.

Are there any locations of interest to visit from my hotel in Nottingham?
Nottingham Castle is a must-see destination on a sandstone outcrop in the city. The building hosts an art gallery and local history museum and offers guided tours through the many hidden tunnels and caves below the castle. One of the tunnels emerges next to another interesting site: a collection of 17th-century cottages dubbed the Museum of Nottingham Life at Brewhouse Yard. While at the castle, visit the statue of Robin Hood at the gates wielding his bow and arrow - with smaller sculptures close by depicting Friar Tuck, Will Scarlet and Little John.
