Experience Nottinghamshire hosts Tourism Forum


This week we hosted our latest Tourism Forum which took place in the picturesque surroundings of Thoresby Hall.

The event was an opportunity for representatives from the tourism industry to find out about the work that Experience Nottinghamshire does to promote attractions, restaurants, shops and hotels and for people to network with others from across the city and the county. We also presented our Visitor Guide which contains almost 400 suggestions of where to stay and what to see in Nottinghamshire as well as an array of inspirational itineraries.

The falconry display was one of the highlights of the event.

During the day guests were able to sample cups of freshly-ground coffee from Stewarts of Trent Bridge, marvel at the Nottingham-inspired cake made by Danielle Gotheridge and find out more about attractions such as Eden Hall Day Spa and the Madhatters’ tearoom. After lunch there was a spectacular falconry display in the grounds of the historic house.

Thoresby Hall, located in the heart of Sherwood Forest, has a luxurious spa which is perfect for a spot of relaxation. While you are there make sure you visit Thoresby Courtyard which includes a gallery, a cafe and a host of independent shops selling beautiful gifts and homeware.

Many thanks to Thoresby for hosting the event and to Richard Merritt, from Flux Pictures, for photographing the event.
