With 1,000 years of history onsite, Nottingham Castle sits perched high upon a sandstone outcrop above the city, the ideal place to start you journey. Nearby enjoy a stylish meal at World Service restaurant, just a stone’s throw from the Castle walls and one of the last remaining 17th century high class homes of that period.

Hop on the train to Newark on the Castle Line, with a journey time of just 22 minutes, where you’ll arrive next to Newark Castle upon the banks of the mighty River Trent. Take a tour into the dungeons below, and then treat yourself to a meal and pint in the Prince Rupert pub, home to more than 500 years of history.
