Re: FMUKCON - Nottingham 21st April 2018

Hey The Fox! I'm keen to go to Wollaton Hall and Deer Park (FYI guys, this is Wayne Manor in The Dark Knight Rises too) and the Natural History Museum. It's over an hour to walk to from the train station, what public transport do you recommend? Thank you! I am keen to go to Wollaton Hall too. I thi...

Re: FMUKCON - Nottingham 21st April 2018

Hi The Fox I arrive at 09:27 and would be lovely if you could meet me but I'm perfectly happy mooching around on my own too. The castle sounds perfect. Do you think before or after the meet up. Loving all your ideas. I have bags of stamina so you can walk my socks off. What time is the meal booked ...

Re: FMUKCON - Nottingham 21st April 2018

Not long to go now! The Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem is open after its refurbishment so all is good for our meet. There was however a sign on the gate leading to the Brewhouse Yard - Museum of Nottingham Life (next door to the Trip), saying that it was now closed as part of the Nottingham Castle refurb...

Re: FMUKCON 2018 - Nottingham

Delighted that you have booked Steve9872. Is Nottingham castle shut in April for a refurbishment? I have been reading up on it - just planning my timings. Our very own Manchester Town Hall has shut for 6 years for a refurbishment - luckily most of us the Manchester FMUKers (plus a visiting 1) went ...

Re: FMUKCON 2018 - Nottingham

And me. Diane65 says I'm coming to Nottingham, therefore I must be. :P I plan to travel late on the Friday, do the Forest Rec parkrun in the morning then join you for lunch.

I’ve never been to Newark on the train, but Newark is a small town in Nottinghamshire about 20 miles from the centre of Nottingham. According to Google maps the distance betw...
