Nottingham Castle and Castle Rock
While the title of 'castle' may be hyperbolic, the stately 17th-century ducal mansion known as Nottingham Castle is home to a fascinating museum and art gallery, and its location on the promontory of Castle Rock commands a grand view of the city of Nottingham beneath. The grounds are pleasant to stroll through, and in them you'll find the famous statue of Robin Hood himself. Nottingham Castle also hosts a number of events, including the Nottingham Beer Festival and the Robin Hood Pageant.
