    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.

    Tapas at Bar Iberico Nottingham Review

    After a busy bank holiday weekend, my girlfriend and I arrived back in Nottingham and, having taken a brief break from eating chocolate, decided to venture out into the city centre to find some food.

    I’d heard a lot of very good things about Iberico World Service restaurant, which is located at the newly re-opened National Justice Musuem, but I’ve never managed to visit it myself. So I was excited to try out their new bar/restaurant.

    Located on one of the main streets in bustling Hockley, step through the doors and you’re instantly transported into a trendy Spanish tavern.

    Restaurant style tables are spread around the bar, but you can also grab a stool at

    World Heritage Day in Robin Hood Country

    It’s #WorldHeritageDay, which gives us an excellent excuse to celebrate some of the wonderful history and heritage that you can explore right across Nottinghamshire.

    The spirit of Robin Hood is never very far away here, and is undoubtedly one of the county’s main attractions. During your visit, follow in his footsteps and explore Sherwood Forest and Visitor Centre.

    The forest is a 450-acre country park and nature reserve and many of its trees are over 500 years old. You can take a walk along one of the way-marked paths and leafy glades to see the mighty tree, the Major Oak; where the legend of Robin Hood and his merry men comes to life.

Fun and Games at The National Videogame Arcade

Videogames are a pastime that easily splits opinion. Often hailed in the media as advocating negative behaviour, the focus on the beneficial aspects of gaming as a new way to learn, develop skills and have fun can be very much overlooked. Along with its annual festival Game City, The National Videogame Arcade in Hockley is…
