Take a bite out of a Nottingham Pie on a heritage break

Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

Embark on a journey of revolt to explore the riots of 1831, and how a protest in a sleepy Nottinghamshire village exploded into the Luddite Movement.

Enter the iron gates of Nottingham Castle where the Riot 1831 mobile app and interactive exhibition will bring the dramatic events of 1831 and the Industrial Revolution alive.  Experience a city gripped with turmoil and how the then home of the Duke of Newcastle bore the brunt of the brutality.

Continue your heritage break with a trip across town to feel the sights and sounds of life as a Framework Knitter in the 19th century, at the Framework Knitters Museum in Ruddington.  See machinery which led to Nottingham’s lace production, a pair of Queen Victoria’s stockings, and discover the story of General Ludd and his Luddites. Round your visit off with a Nottingham Pie at the Ned Ludd pub, named in honour of Nottingham’s famous rebel and featuring local Nottinghamshire produce.
