Visit the home of the Bramley Apple in Nottinghamshire

Southwell, Nottinghamshire

Discover the apple of Nottinghamshire's eye: The Bramley Apple. Visit its home in Southwell for a mouth-watering apple escape this autumn.

The nation’s favourite cooking apple originated in the pretty market town of Southwell 200 years ago. Take a visit to see the original Bramley Apple tree which still bears fruit, walk along the Bramley Apple heritage trail to discover the fruit’s roots and stop for a tipple at The Bramley Apple pub in the heart of town.

Don’t miss the annual Bramley Apple Festival, taking place in October, when Southwell comes alive with all things apples. Sample Bramley Apple crumble ice cream at the nearby Newfield Dairy, or get merry over Bramley Apple Martinis at the Ned Ludd pub in Nottingham.

Make your food experience even more special with an overnight stay in one of Southwell’s pretty B&Bs and enjoy a very appley weekend.
