Nottinghamshire Named One of the Top 7 Cities in the UK
Here in Nottinghamshire we know our slice of heaven in the heart of England is nothing short of spectacular, but we’re glad others are taking notice too. The travel experts at Canada’s leading online travel agency, Flight Network, recently released their blog post titled, “The 7 Absolute Best Cities in the UK”. Nottinghamshire was named one of the best places to find history, culture, natural beauty, diversity and exciting attractions in a single travel destination.
About the List
Flight Network’s team of intrepid travellers and industry experts knows the UK is no stranger to tourists. However, many of those tourists aren’t venturing away from the major hubs to lesser-known but equally as magnificent cities. The travel agency decided it was time to encourage travellers from within Canada and around the world to experience more off-the-beaten path destinations when travelling to the United Kingdom. The article outlined each city’s best features, a number of things to do, and a few attractions, establishments and activities that simply shouldn’t be missed.
Why Nottinghamshire is one of the best
After scouring the country, for cities that continuously stand above the rest, the Flight Network team couldn’t stop thinking about Nottinghamshire. Loaded with history and culture to which travellers around the world can relate (it is the famous home of Robin Hood after all), Nottingham was continuously praised for our proud locals, rich literary culture and long list of must-visit annual events. They named the Nottingham Contemporary art gallery, Nottingham Castle and the Nottingham Cave Trail – an underground labyrinth of more than 700 man-made caves – as things every tourist should do when visiting our historic city.
And when it came to things no one should leave Nottingham without seeing or doing, the National Videogame Arcade, the Nottingham Tennis Center (the UK’s largest tennis center) and Robin Hood Tours were mentioned. Whether you visit Nottingham in spring, summer, fall or winter, you’re guaranteed to be blown away by the long list of things to do, events to attend, mouthwatering meals to enjoy and charming shops to visit.
We were proud to find ourselves on this list of just seven cities that Flight Network deemed the best in the United Kingdom, and we hope their popular blog post will encourage travellers to venture off the beaten path to some of the UK’s lesser-known gems during the upcoming summer travel season.
