History & Heritage

From the Ice Age drawings at Creswell Crags, a perfectly preserved snapshot of a typical 1920s home at Mr Straw’s House in Worksop to the magnificent Elizabethan mansion that is Wollaton Hall, Nottinghamshire is crammed with historical attractions.

Experience fun and engaging heritage at the National Justice Museum and the City of Caves - where you can buy a great value joint ticket. Explore the pretty village of Edwinstowe, supposedly the place where Robin Hood and Maid Marian tied the knot. Venture into Laxton, the only village in England that still operates traditional open field farming.

There are lots of opportunities to take the family out for the day to experience something totally new. With a whole host of trails around the city and county, exploring our heritage doesn't have to cost the earth!
