    Family Fun for All at Clip’ n Climb’ Nottingham

    My daughter-in-law was looking for a venue for my grandson’s 6th birthday party.

    Clip n’ Climb fitted the bill perfectly – with 22, five and six year olds ready to burn off lots of energy the excitement and anticipation was high!

    Clip’ n Climb, didn’t disappoint! From the warm welcome, the informative and friendly safety briefing, to letting the little ones loose on the 26 obstacle courses including Jungle Vine, Sky Scraper, Spaghetti Junction, Lightning Crack and Stairway to Heaven, to name a few!

    The children had a great time scaling the walls, climbing to the top and being proud of their achievements. My grandson even braved the leap of faith.

    The food was amazing

    Behold! The Dinosaurs of China at Wollaton Hall

    With just under a month to go until the Dinosaurs of China depart Nottingham, a few of us from the Visit Nottinghamshire team thought it was high time we took a trip to finally meet these wondrous prehistoric beasts. On a blustery, autumnal Tuesday morning we met on the steps under the great Wollaton Hall ready for an encounter which we had been anticipating all summer.

    Described as a ‘once-in-a-lifetime opportunity’ by New Scientist, an exhibition of this importance deserves a stunning setting, and there are few finer than Wollaton Hall.

    Wollaton Hall almost needs no introduction, but for those unfamiliar with this 16th century

Speak In Nottingham To Me – A Beginner’s Guide To Nottingham’s Dialect

Language is certainly one of our best creations. Without it, it would be difficult for us to coexist, establish communities and share feelings. Language makes it all easier and helps us work together and understand one another. Throughout history people always felt the need to find one universal language for all. Several attempts were made to popularise different languages…
