Find Byron's Nottinghamshire on the Byron Trail

Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

Lord Byron was famous during his lifetime as a figure who could inspire love, romance, political change and liberation through his powerful works.


Visit Newstead Abbey, his former home, where you can visit his bedroom complete with its original bed, furniture, and replica pistol. Hear of his heroic and curious antics as you soak up the history of this former monastery, dating back to the 12th Century.

Treat your loved one to afternoon tea in the cafe, or pack a picnic to enjoy in the extensive gardens. The Japanese, Spanish and walled gardens are all ideal for a private lunch spot.

Stay at Colwick Hall Hotel, another of the Byron family homes, and make a fuss of your loved one over a meal in Byron's Brasserie.
