    “My favourite haunts in Nottinghamshire are places seemingly caught between times.

    A place held dear in many Nottingham hearts is the monument to the arts that is the Theatre Royal. Built and re-built by the greatest Victorian architects, it breathed life into a derelict part of old Nottingham and transformed the area in the middle of the 19th century into a
