Enjoy a summer of salvation and scientific discoveries

Nottingham and Worksop, Nottinghamshire

Step back in time to unearth lesser-known facts about the birth of the Salvation Army, Boots the Chemist and a maths genius admired by Einstein.

Take in one of Nottingham’s most inspiring historic attractions at the birthplace museum of Salvation Army founder William Booth. See the humble home in which he grew up and the streets where he preached along with fellow believers. 

Test your brainpower at Green’s Windmill and Science Centre with hands-on experiments exploring electricity, magnetism and light and find out about George Green, a mathematical genius who developed new formulas, which helped scientists to understand the world around us.

Remember to take away a bag of organically produced flour before heading over for a sumptuous lunch at the Larder on Goosegate, housed in the Grade II-listed Victorian building that was once home to Jesse Boot’s first pharmacy. Admire the beautiful turn of the century interiors and original Boots artefacts in this elegant historic house.
