Clifford's Tower stands as a proud symbol of the power of England's medieval kings. Originally built by William the Conqueror to subdue the rebels of the north, it was twice burned to the ground, before being rebuilt by Henry III in the 13th century. The tower takes its name from one grisly incident in its long history when Roger de Clifford was executed for treason against Edward II and hanged in chains from the tower walls. With sweeping panoramic views of York and the surrounding countryside, it isn't hard to see why Clifford's Tower played such a crucial role in the control of northern England. https://www.visityork.org/explore/cliffords-tower-p793171

Bilsthorpe Heritage Museum
In the early 1900s, Bilsthorpe village's population was approximately 200 and slowly declining. Then coal mining arrived in Bilsthorpe in the 1920s and considerably changed the landscape and social development of the village. When the mine closed in 1997 social changes had to be made due to unemployment and the loss of the common bond of the mine, which united them. Bilsthorpe Heritage Society began after the mine closed and was formed by a handful of residents who had the foresight to collect artefacts and memorabilia from the local mine and surrounding area before it was lost in time. This was so the history of mining not just in Bilsthorpe but across the industry could be preserved for future generations. https://www.visit-nottinghamshire.co.uk/things-to-do/bilsthorpe-heritage-museum-p627401

The site is accessible to all – families with young children, people with disabilities, and parties from schools and colleges. You can just come for a while, perhaps to feed and pet some of the animals, or we do courses and special events for beekeepers and people interested in horticulture. The farm has been accredited with many awards for its efforts and contributions over the years, as we provide so much to the community and would like to take pride in this. https://www.visit-nottinghamshire.co.uk/things-to-do/stonebridge-city-farm-p566951

Nottingham Cathedral
Nottingham Cathedral (the Cathedral Church of St Barnabas) was designed and built under renowned architect A.W.N. Pugin and the foundation stone was laid by Bishop Nicholas Wiseman in 1842, who had brought with him the relics of Saint Barnbas from Rome. At the time of its opening in 1844, the Cathedral was the largest Catholic church to have been built in England since the Reformation. The Cathedral is the Mother Church of the Catholic Diocese of Nottingham which covers the counties of Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Rutland. The Cathedral has been home to choral music since its consecration and today boasts a flourishing Music Department with the Cathedral Choir and Cathedral Youth Choir. https://www.visit-nottinghamshire.co.uk/things-to-do/nottingham-cathedral-p764191

Redsmith Distillery
Redsmith Distillery is the only gin maker and distillery in the City of Nottingham. Come to the creative heart of the city and meet Jenny the Redsmith still No.1. At the heart of every distillery is the still itself where the spirits are created. The Redsmith still named Jenny was designed and built in Nottingham by Redsmith founder Wayne Asher. Just in case you are wondering, why Redsmith? Redsmith is another name for a coppersmith and a fair amount of coppersmithing went into building Jenny. Learn about gin and how it is made whilst tasting the multi-award-winning Redsmith London Dry Gin as well as other fabulous gin expressions created at this tiny micro-distillery. Owing to the boutique nature of the distillery the team at Redsmith's can only host up to seven guests at any one time. https://www.visit-nottinghamshire.co.uk/things-to-do/redsmith-distillery-p772461

Nottingham Council House
It takes a building of some distinction to stand out in a city as rich in beautiful and interesting architecture as Nottingham, and the Council House does not disappoint... Far from being a museum, The Council House is a vital, living part of the city and the centre of local politics as elected councillors who represent the people of the City of Nottingham conduct much of their business here. This magnificent Neo-Baroque building, whose 200ft high dome dominates the city skyline, has been the heart of the city centre for 80 years and a source of pride for the people of Nottingham. On a still day, the chimes from the Council House clock, known as Little John, can be heard for miles around. It has been the setting for many splendid public occasions. Royalty, statesmen and women and people from the world of showbusiness have been received and entertained here. The FA and European cups have been held aloft from its balcony, and a great many worthy organisations and individuals have received the thanks of a grateful city within its walls. https://www.visit-nottinghamshire.co.uk/things-to-do/nottingham-council-house-p626231

Green's Windmill
Green's Windmill in Sneinton was built by the father of notable scientist and mathematician George Green in 1807. Today the working Mill is a popular museum and science centre, which teaches new generations of children about the valuable work of George Green. Sadly, the mill was badly damaged by a fire in 1947 but was later restored by Nottingham City Council in the 1980s. The windmill began milling again in December 1986 and the giant sails can still be seen working to this day. George Green was a mathematical genius who developed new ways of doing mathematics, which has helped scientists to understand the world around us. Test your brainpower with the hands-on experiments in the Science Centre which explore electricity, magnetism and light, ideal for young children. https://www.visit-nottinghamshire.co.uk/things-to-do/greens-windmill-p354661
