Top 5 #LoveNotts Photos of the Week – May 19th
The weekend is almost here and we’re looking forward to spending some time out and about enjoying Nottinghamshire! But before we do that we’re excited to look back at the Instagram #lovenotts activity from the past week.
1. The University of Nottingham campus looks magical both in the morning and at night but this photo took our breath away. When you’re exploring Nottingham don’t forget to take a photo in front of the famous N O T T I N G H A M sign.
2. Museum of Nottingham Life at Brewhouse Yard – this cottage/museum is nestled at the base of Castle Rock and is a great place to learn about the social history of Nottingham over the last 300 years. The Museum of Nottingham Life gives you the opportunity to step back in time and experience being in a Victorian home. Oh, and it also looks stunning, especially when you take a photo from the top of Nottingham Castle’s hill.
I’m afraid today is not a picturesque day as it’s raining (again). Luckily, I have a few photos still waiting on my cameral roll. • Here’s one of Rock Cottage, a truly fantastic place that I explored recently. It’s part of a row of cottages from the 17th century called Brewhouse Yard. • The coolest bit about the cottages is that a big part of them is built in the sandstone. So they are really part house, part cave! • At its peak, Brewhouse Yard once contained a community of about 20 houses with a population of more than a hundred people…. These houses must have been crammed with people! • Today, the cottages are a museum that everyone can visit if they want to know more about what life was like in Nottingham

3. University of Nottingham Jubilee Campus – look who’s enjoying himself in the sun. We’re looking forward to joining him as soon as the sun starts shining again.
4. The Arboretum Park is the oldest public park and the closest park to the city centre opened in 1852. Although never confirmed, Nottingham Arboretum has widely been said to have been the inspiration for J.M Barrie’s Neverland. J.M Barrie did indeed live in Nottingham before he wrote Peter Pan, so it’s definitely a possibility.
Fortunate enough to have another sunny Thursday. The boy fell over while running on the kitchen floor and has quite an impressive lump on his head. In an effort to distract him we ended up riding the tram to the arboretum before getting cake and dashing back for Wiggle and Giggle. Luckily the distraction worked and I got to enjoy the views across to (what I think is) All Saint’s Church. #noworktoday #outdoorsandhappy #nottinghampost #lovenotts #churchsteeple #nottingham #allsaintschurch #sunnyday #lovenotts

5. Wollaton Hall and Deer Park – standing on a natural hill three miles west of Nottingham City Centre, Wollaton Hall is set in five hundred acres of spectacular gardens and parkland. The hall was used as the setting for Wayne Manor in the 2012 Batman film, Dark Knight Rises. We love how this oak towers over everything and everyone.
