Your Top 10 favourite tourist spots in Nottingham – #RSH Guides
It’s Friday, and that can only mean one thing – it’s time to announce the winners of our weekly competition. This time round, 10 savvy commuters won £10’s worth of redspottedhanky.com loyalty points by tweeting their tips to us at #RSH Guides, for us to share through foursquare. This week, we asked you for your favourite tourist spots in Nottingham.
Read on for this week’s winning tips and find out where to go if you’re looking for Nottingham’s best tourist attractions…
• Local expert @bigwave87 took the first spot on our winner’s list this week with a tourist tip to visit Nottingham’s City of Caves underneath a shopping centre in the heart of the city. Tourists can explore beneath the city streets and get lost inside the impressive network of sandstone caves that at various times have been used as public house cellars, a tannery, and an air raid shelter.
• Our next tour guide to make the top ten list, @thesplan earned a spot with an insider tip to visit the National Ice Centre, the UK’s first twin Olympic-sized ice rink facility where visitors can strap on their skates and glide around the rink – have an ice time!
• @RichSmithy got spooky on this week’s winner’s list with a ghastly proposition to explore Nottingham’s haunted past on a Ghost Walk. Expect great stories, good guides, and a few scares along the way.
• @daisyduck123 hiked her way into the top ten this week with a nature-based tip to visit Robin Hood’s old stomping grounds in Sherwood Forest and check out the impressive Major Oak, the hollow tree more than 800 years old that’s been voted Britain’s favourite tree.
• @sevendwarfs84 earned those loyalty points too this week after suggesting a stop at Green’s Mill, Nottingham’s working windmill. Aside from interactive family-oriented activities, visitors can also purchase the mill’s flour, the perfect memento from your trip.
• @Eh_El_Eye_Eh cruised into the top ten this week with a great shout to stop by Old Market Square when the sun goes down and see the fountain lit up against the beautiful historic buildings in the area.
• @Munchy07175452 raked in the prize points as well with a brilliant tweet suggesting a stop at Wollaton Hall and Park. The beautiful grounds are great for spending an afternoon in, and the iconic house was used as the location for Bruce Wayne’s mansion in The Dark Knight Rises.
• @sunatal also claimed a spot on our top ten this week with a great tip to monkey around in Trentham Gardens. Inside the beautiful grounds you can find the Monkey Forest, where visitors can get up close and personal with the 140 monkeys who live on the 60 acre estate in total freedom.
• And pulling in the last of this week’s points, @MJRestiano steamed into the top ten with an artistic stroke of genius, suggesting a visit to Nottingham Contemporary art gallery to check out the impressive collection and visiting exhibitions.
