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.
