Here are Kate’s favourites:
“Creswell Crags – For people who like having a nosey around other people’s houses, but instead of a big house, it’s a caveman’s cave!
The Cattle Market – You really have to go down early on a Saturday morning, have a look at all the furniture and tat in fruit boxes before getting breakfast from the van. For the brave, there is a stall selling tins without labels and the auction house with all the proper antiques.
Highfields Park – Yes, there is the galleries and theatre and museum at Lakeside, which is excellent; there is a lake with boats on; the park and herons (which are basically dinosaurs) but most of all – there is cake, and scones and tea at the Pavilion Café, overlooking the lake. Icing on the metaphorical cake.
Mansfield Road – “Manny Road” might not be the first place you think to take visitors to but it is worth walking them up to the Lincolnshire Poacher for a pint and having a look in all the shops on the way. Sadly, there aren’t as many any more (RIP Dotty’s Café, Kathleen & Lilly’s and Anarchy Records) but the ones that are still going or have newly arrived are well worth a trip up the “Road of Dreams” (©Beane Noodler – leftlion.co.uk).”
