Looking for things to do in Nottingham? Start your Robin Hood trail at the castle with its towers, gatehouses and ducal mansion housing historic stoneware and alabaster carvings. Or visit the shopping centres which bustle obliviously above the city's network of sandstone caves, carved out in the Dark Ages. Nottingham is cultural on so many levels. In the open, merry men can trace Robin Hood deep into royal hunting ground below the oak and birches at Sherwood Forest. Blink and you'll miss bats and kestrels flapping between the birch and oak trees. Anyone for cricket? Fast bowlers spin at Trent Bridge test matches.
