Nature
“Woolaton Hall and Park are Nottingham's number 1 attraction especially during the refurbishment of Nottingham castle. The park is home to a boating lake, deer, and coppices. There is a golf course that is quite challenging. The Hall was also used as Bruce manor for the filming of the Batman trilogy.”

Entertainment
“Some of you may recognise this as Batman’s house, and it is commensurately impressive with beautiful architecture and surrounded by Wollaton Deer Park. The deer roam free here so you can walk right up to them with no fence in between. Please keep in mind they are wild animals and it isn’t a petting zoo, but they are truest amazing to spend time with. There is at least one festival here every year, ‘Splendour’ that’s family friendly and is a good day of music.”

“Situated on a natural hill within 500 acres of rolling parkland, and built between 1580 and 1588, Wollaton Hall is one of the country's finest Grade 1 listed Elizabethan mansions. Located within the hall is the Natural History Museum housing wildlife exhibits and collections of rare and unique curiosity.”

Meal Takeaway
“Award Winning Fish and Chip Shop, which also has a small restaurant attached. Everything freshly cooked, so a short wait is required for your chips, but worth it! Served in a box, so no soggy chips. Located on Bramcote Lane parade of shops, down to the Hemlockstone and turn right, far end of the shops on the right hand side.”

Forest
“Visit Sherwod Forest for a great day out in a national nature park. Hire a cycle and ride around the beautiful parklands. Visit the great oak. This is the home of the dandy highway man Robin Hood. This place is steeped in history and there is also a great visitors centre at Sherwood Forest where you can find all information about the history of the land your are walking on.”
