Mr Straws House – This 1920’s home is fascinating. Remaining virtually unchanged with décor, ornaments, and exhibits it’s a walk back in time to when the Straws lived in the house.

Creswell Crags Museum & Prehistoric Gorge – A spectacular magnesian limestone gorge that straddles the border between Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. It is dotted with a large number of caves, fissures, and rock shelters, many of which harboured secrets from our Prehistoric past.
Clumber Park – Covering over 3800 acres, comprising of park and farmland. It was once the seat of the Dukes of Newcastle. A National Trust property, offering year-round colour and including the memorable 2-mile avenue of limes forming the main approach. Home to a lake, 19th-century glasshouses, walled gardens, and vineries it’s a lovely place to wander.
Robin Hood – Follow in the footsteps of the legendary Robin Hood and explore the beautiful woodland of Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve, including Robin’s world-famous hideaway hidden in the ancient Major Oak tree.
Laser Labyrinth – This is an exciting place to take kids (and ‘big kids’) who are full of energy and want some fun! There are a number of really cool games to play, in some interesting zones.
With the whole of Nottinghamshire to explore as well, being bored is just not an option!
