    An Interview With Karl Gibson, Nottingham’s Tourism Superstar

    With subterranean caves, a cellar full of local ales, mysterious cursed objects, and a few ghosts thrown in for good measure, there’s certainly a lot to look after at Nottingham’s oldest inn. Karl Gibson has been the landlord of Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem for the past four years, attentively keeping things rolling as the 30th successive known landlord in a whopping 800 year history.

    Through sharing the pub’s fascinating history on tours of the building and caves, Karl has become known for his knowledge of local history and his passion for the business shines through. This year he is a finalist in the Visit England Tourism

    Nottingham’s New Independent Shopping Trail

    More often than not the best things in life take a bit longer to discover, and it is certainly something to keep in mind when getting to know a city. While Nottingham is splendidly compact to get around, if you roam a little beyond the bustle of the main city streets you’ll find a true taste of Nottingham’s character. Hiding within retro shopping arcades, peaceful courtyards, inconspicuous alleys (or twitchells if you want to learn the local dialect!) there is a spectacular array of niche, independent businesses all ripe for discovery.

    These ventures are lovingly began by locals, who hold a true passion and knowledge of their trade.
