Spring into action on a family adventure break near Nottingham

Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

From picnics to paddles, Nottinghamshire is ideal for a springtime family adventure break, with an abundance of things to do and places to explore.

Take the kids on a family holiday and camp beneath the stars at Holme Pierrepont Country Park, home of the National Water Sports Centre, where you’ll feel a million miles from anywhere else. Explore delightful nature trails before walking the line along the 30ft Sky Trail, then bring out the solider in you with an Ecombat mission.

When the kids have bitten off more than they can ‘choo choo’, take some time to chill aboard a heritage locomotive at the nearby Great Central Railway; sit back and relax on a journey through miles of beautiful landscapes.

Explore nearby Nottingham for fun things to do with the kids, stopping off at Annie’s Burger Shack to try any one of over 30 burger varieties on offer, including the popular Sherwood burger.
