Soak up the sun in Nottingham’s buzzing Castle Quarter

Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

Discover Nottingham’s Castle Quarter, a hive for excitement and particularly atmospheric in the summer with alfresco dining and outdoor events.

As the evenings get lighter, nothing sounds more appealing than dining outdoors with a group of friends. At the centre of Nottingham’s Castle Quarter, Fothergills is an ideal place to begin your evening of summer entertainment and the historic restaurant, with alfresco dining, overlooks the famous Robin Hood statue.

Summer marks the beginning of Nottingham Castle’s outdoor theatre season. The immaculate formal gardens make it the perfect spot to sit and enjoy an outdoor performance. Nottingham Castle also has a secret cave system, dating back to medieval times and stretching far below street level, which can be experienced on a special walking tour.

At the end of a long day, rest your head at Saco Apartments, conveniently located nearby in the quiet Ropewalk neighbourhood. Bright and spacious, with fully equipped kitchens and added conveniences like iPod docking stations, they’re perfect for city breaks with friends.
