Please help me!

by baron1970

* We will be staying at Village Hotel & Leisure Club Nottingham and considering that we will be arriving in Nottingham by train from Edinburgh which train station should we take off?
* Is there a night train to save us from one night hotel cost from Edinburgh to Nottingham?
* Any interesting places for our 4.5 years old daughter to see in Nottingham? (like a zoo or something about Robin Hood, Disney etc.?)
* Any outlet shopping near Nottingham?
* Which club or restaurant would you recommend for our two nights at Nottingham again considering our daughter?

Thanks in advance!

The last train out of Edinburgh that would take you through the night to Nottingham is 21:00. It takes just over 10 hours to get to Nottingham and now the bad news - it is not direct. You need to change at York, Doncaster and Sheffield. With a child I would not think it suitable. Have a look at www.thetrainline.com and type in Edinburgh to Nottingham as your route with a 21:00 departure and it will show the times and route.
Village Hotels are very good - all new and have quite reasonable restaurants. The only problem is (more bad news I am afraid) - they are all on the edge of cities. The Nottingham hotel is 6 miles out so its a taxi I guess to and from the hotel.

Travel Tips for Nottingham

Old Pubs

by pmarshuk

Nottingham has many very old pubs including The Old Salutation, the Royal Children and the Old Bell. But the oldest of all is the Trip To Jerusalem which dates from 1189. It is built over the front of a cave in the castle rock and some of the back rooms are carved out of the sandstone. Instead of Darts play the Ring O' Bull game downstairs where you try to loop a metal ring over a horn.

Statue of Captain Albert Ball V.C.

by iwys

Albert Ball was the most famous British flying ace of the First World War. He is credited with 42 air combat victories against German aircraft and was awarded the MC, DSO, Russian Order of St. George, French Legion d'Honneur and the Victoria Cross. He achieved all this in just two years before he was killed in 1917, aged 20, following a dogfight with Lothar von Richtoven, the Red Baron. There is some dispute over which of these two flying aces was the greatest. In their final dogfight, Ball had riddled the Red Baron's plane with bullets, forcing him to crash land. The Red Baron stepped unharmed out of the wreckage, But, Ball's plane had been hit too, and moments later he came crashing out of the sky to his death. Richtoven was killed the following year, credited with 40 air combat victories - two fewer than Ball.

If you are interested in finding out more about Albert Ball, several of books have been written about him over the years from "Captain Ball, V.C." Briscoe, Stannard & Jenkins (1918), through "The Boy Hero" W. Briscoe (1920) and "Albert Ball, V C, DSO" R. Kiernan (1933) to "Albert Ball, V.C" C. Bowyer (1977). His dress uniform and leather flying helmet are kept at the Imperial War Museum in London, while pens, pencils and a one pound note recovered from his body are on display at the RAF Museum in Hendon.

He came from Nottingham and his impressive statue stands in the grounds of Nottingham Castle.

Confessions Of A Drinker !

by Nixter01 about Pitch & Piano

Thsi is an amazing pub ! It was formely a church and it was quite a job to convert it into the pub that it is today, but it has been achieved and the decor inside is still quite that of a church and you get a guilty feeling of drinking alcohol inside a religious building !
It does get busy at weekends so be prepared to queue ( we have, not for that long though ) It is well worth the visit ! No Trainers or Tracksuits

Great British Cooking

by raquelitalarga about Larder On Goosegate

The chef is keen for customers to be aware British ingredients, such as Cropwell Bishop cheese (local area) or Herefordshire beef, are mainstays on the menu. There are good deals for customers eating early and the 2 course lunch menu was good value.
This building is important in the history of Nottingham. It is the site that the first BOOTS the chemist shop was opened by John Boot in 1850. His son Jesse Boot was a founding father of Nottingham University. Brixham fish on the lunch menu.

Nottingham Castle

by nylo

Theres a small fee to entre the castle grounds. Theres beautiful gardens and a few topiary's of Robin Hood & Maid Marion. You also get free entry into the museum they have on site. You could spend a decent ammount of time here if you like looking into museums in fine detail. We were in a bit of a rush, so we breifly looked at everything and had to leave. There were signs about some cave tours, but we didnt have time unfortunately.
