Here's another thought for anyone arriving in Nottingham before 9.30 on the Saturday morning, now that the use of public transport is in the equation:-

https://www.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/about ... entre-map/

From the train station – get a bus to Victoria Centre (7 mins) near 66, G8 on the map and then walk 17 mins up Mansfield Road to the Arboretum Park - located on map 22, C3 / D3. So you should arrive close to 10.00 o’clock. I think people spend on average 45 mins there, so I think you should have time to walk around and then allow time to walk down to the Trip 42, K5 (about 20 mins).

Have lunch 12:00 – 13:00 / 13:15ish

Walk – for about 10 mins - from the Trip passed Robin Hood statue / entrance of the castle up Maid Marian Way to Upper Parliament Street which is to the right of the Albert Hall 13, H4 to catch the 30 bus to Wollaton Hall, the bus journey is about 15 mins and then there is a 7 min walk to the hall according to Nottingham City Transport route planner :D , stay there until about 4pm then get the bus back into town and get off at Victoria Centre.

Walk – about 5 - 10 mins - from Victoria Centre to the Lace Market area for - Nottingham Contemporary which closes at 6pm and then Pitcher and Piano which is next door 32 J8. The train Station is within easy access from here.

For those with time then there is St Marys Church 74, J9 around the corner and / or Market Square with the Lions are.

Once again this is only an idea.


The itinerary is The Fox's work just so I am not accused of plagiarism ;)

Ok, it looks like March and 7 April is out, as I may not be able to do 17 or 24 March, and 31 March is Easter weekend.

How about 14 or 21 April?

Perhaps we could go for 21 April then or even 28 April, far away from Easter so people are not holidaying at Easter and holidaying straightaway after Easter, if they want to have a weekend break in Nottingham, to spread it out a bit? Thinking more for myself :D I may be away over Easter, so would prefer 28 April on hindsight! Could Diane add a vote button on this thread, and let's take a vote? Let's get this show going :thanks:
