    Tapas at Bar Iberico Nottingham Review

    After a busy bank holiday weekend, my girlfriend and I arrived back in Nottingham and, having taken a brief break from eating chocolate, decided to venture out into the city centre to find some food.

    I’d heard a lot of very good things about Iberico World Service restaurant, which is located at the newly re-opened National Justice Musuem, but I’ve never managed to visit it myself. So I was excited to try out their new bar/restaurant.

    Located on one of the main streets in bustling Hockley, step through the doors and you’re instantly transported into a trendy Spanish tavern.

    World Heritage Day in Robin Hood Country

    It’s #WorldHeritageDay, which gives us an excellent excuse to celebrate some of the wonderful history and heritage that you can explore right across Nottinghamshire.

    The spirit of Robin Hood is never very far away here, and is undoubtedly one of the county’s main attractions. During your visit, follow in his footsteps and explore Sherwood Forest and Visitor Centre.

    The forest is a 450-acre country park and nature reserve and many of its trees are over 500 years old. You can take a walk along one of the way-marked paths and leafy glades to see the mighty tree, the Major Oak; where the legend of Robin Hood and his merry men comes to life.

    A Year in the Saddle – Interview with Nottingham’s World Record Breaker

    With Christmas now a distant memory, we’ve reached the time of year when New Year Resolutions are tested, and the best of intentions fall by the wayside. If you ever needed a little inspiration to get outdoors and be a bit more active, it’d be hard to find a better role model than Kajsa Tylén.

    For the last year, this Nottingham resident has been quietly making history, taking to her saddle every day in a bid to break a 77-year-old Guinness World Record, by cycling 50,000 km in a single year.

    Setting out with Billie Fleming’s extraordinary record – set back in 1938 – in her sights, Kajsa cycled through wind, rain and

    Walking Nottingham’s Canals

    As a new year begins, many of us are facing up to the fact that we may have revelled a little too much over the festive period and that it’s time to put December’s celebrations – and all of those extra pigs in blankets, turkey cobs and Christmas tipples – behind us.

    With health on everyone’s mind at the moment, what better way to see in a fresh start to 2017 than by getting outside and exploring one of Nottingham’s lesser known treasures – its canal!

    I’d love to say that a desire to get outdoors and get active was what motivated myself and my girlfriend to embark on an epic 15 mile
