    National Vegetarian Week in Nottingham

    Compared to many countries the UK is rather impressive when it comes to understanding different diets and cuisines. Nottingham is no exception, and whether you’re vegetarian, a once in a while carnivore or interested in limiting your meaty meals you’ll find creative choices in cool settings throughout the city.

    With it being National Vegetarian Week we thought we’d give you a run down of some of our favourite places in Hockley and the Lace Market to have a meat free meal. You’ll find everything from quick cafe bites to luxurious classy dining, with creative and colourful dishes that might just turn you!

    Enchanting Escapes in Robin Hood Country

    While the city offers its diverse culture of shopping, night life and international cuisine, sometimes what we really want from a weekend away is to escape the hustle and bustle and retreat into a calmer, slower way of life. Nottinghamshire has a great balance between urban cool and country charm, with the north of the county full of rolling hills, legendary forests and great activities.

    We all know the story of Robin Hood and his exploits, but what of the ancient sprawl of mighty oaks that make up Sherwood Forest?

    A Top Cuppa Tea in Notts

    It’s a classic British tradition, an acceptable addiction, a pick-me-up, calm-me-down moment of tranquillity in the day. A builder’s, a brew, or as we like to say in Nottingham a good old mash. To celebrate National Tea Day we are sharing some of our tip top tea spots throughout the county. But before we go on, we suggest you pour yourself a pot and pair with some digestives before the mad cravings take hold.

Birds, herds and beautiful scenery was the focus on my Wildlife Photography Course at Sherwood Hideaway

When I was asked to spend my weekend at Sherwood Hideaway to take part in wildlife activities available there, of course I was only too happy to oblige. It sounded like a wonderful experience and I could think of much worse ways to spend my weekend. Wildlife walks take place each Sunday at Sherwood Hideaway…
