Nottingham is one of the 10 most visited cities in England and has a historic past with settlements in the area dating back to pre-Roman times.

It holds a pretty impressive location, sitting at the top of a 130 foot cliff in a place known as "Castle Rock". The Castle operates as a museum and Gallery today and also has some interesting cave tours that are available.

Another sight worth a stop is the popular statue of Robin Hood, which is located just outside Nottingham Castle from what was once the moat.
