Places to visit around Nottingham
With the summer holidays just around the corner, it’s time to start planning summer days out with the family. Make a day of it and head to places to visit around Nottingham!
With our fabulous city being located in the East Midlands, it’s pretty central to a large proportion of the UK, leaving it easy for commuters to get to via a range of transport services. You and your family can visit the lively city centre with a host of attractions to enjoy. Or, if you prefer scenic and tranquil settings, then the beautiful Nottinghamshire countryside is ideal for relaxed family walks and bike rides.
National Justice Museum
The National Justice Museum is a must-see for your trip to the city centre. The Museum uses original courtrooms, dungeons and prison cells to exhibit crime and punishment collections in a fun and interactive way. History is brought to life with a variety of colourful characters with different stories of justice to tell.
City of Caves
Who doesn’t love to see a real-life cave? The City of Caves is a set of man-made caves dating from 1250 AD that was discovered under the local shopping centre. This is also part of the National Justice Museum which is just a short walk away, so you can have a bite to eat in between activities.
Stonebridge City Farm
Calling all animal lovers! The Farm is an urban-based farm in the city centre. The Farm offers everyone the chance to see the animals and to help with feeding. Animals on the farm include cows, sheep, ponies, goats, birds, pigs, bunnies and more! The charity-based farm is free entry to visitors, with donations much appreciated.
Are you an adrenalin junky looking for a day out with the thrill factor? Adrenalin Jungle offers outdoor entertainment such as paintballing, quad biking, 4×4 off-road driving, archery, assault course, blindfold driving and off-road karting activities. Perfect for family members full of energy!
If you fancy a different setting to your local park for the day then Colwick Hall has plenty to offer to keep you and the whole family entertained.
Do you love Afternoon Tea as much as we do? Here at Colwick Hall, we have a range of mouthwatering Afternoon Tea for you to choose from. The selection of cakes and desserts always goes down a treat, including of course the hallowed scone with jam and clotted Cornish cream. We also offer Afternoon Tea outdoors, so you can enjoy the sunshine this summer! The only question you will be asking is… shall I put the cream or jam first on my scone?
Swim at Colwick Park
Did you know if you adventure down the footpath at the back of the hall, through a beautiful scenic area, in just five minutes you will reach open water swimming at Colwick Park? Go for an open water swim with the family. Then, warm up hot chocolate and a piece of cake at Colwick Hall.
Walks and Bike Rides
