Can you help me to reach Nottingham?

by jitkaceska

Dear VT friends!
I´m from the Czech Republic and I will go to NCSL workshop: "eTwinning for Special Educational Needs, Friday 29th September. It is very strange, because we can fly directly from Prague to Nottingham, but my trip is organized from Prague to Paris to Birmingham by airplane and by train to DERBY. I haven´t any idea what is the way to go from Derby do Nottingham. Can you help me, please? I will arrive to Derby at 1.39 PM.
Thanks a lot, Jitka

Derby looks to be 10 miles or 16 kilometers from Nottingham. There should be a coach and taxi from the station. All the best at your workshop

I think this trip is organised very strangely, because you can go by train equally quickly and directly from Birmingham Airport to either Nottingham or Derby (both journeys are more or less the same length, as the cities are fairly near to each other). You have to change at Birmingham New Street station for either. If there is any way you can get your party to re-organise it would be the most sensible option.

However, getting from Derby to Nottingham is simple. Using the train is easiest (it's unlikely that there will be any long delays). You will have to buy a new ticket at Nottingham for the trip, but this will not be a problem. www.nationalrail.co.uk is the best site for timetables, and you need not book or purchase your ticket in advance.

There is a coach from Derby to Nottingham (www.nationalexpress.com for times and fares) but this will be slower than the train.

I assume you are staying at the NCSL accommodation? If so, then they offer free pre-arranged pick-ups. It is worth contacting them to organise this as it will save getting a bus/taxi from Nottingham station to the venue. If they have organised your travel, you might ask them if they will collect you from Derby station and then your problem would be solved!

http://www.britishcouncil.org/etwinning-uk-professional-development-workshop-2006.htm is the link for the pick-ups.

I should have said; don't take a taxi from Derby to Nottingham. It will cost rather a lot of money!

Derby is a 'stones throw' from Nottinghas as we say (meaning very near). The train is cheap and very regular, and the best option if you are already at the station. Just buy the ticket on the day.

If you find yourself in the city centre for some reason don't bother with a National Express Coach. There are regular local bus services between the two cities run by a company called 'Trent Barton'. The fastest bus is called the 'Red Arrow', just buy a ticket from the driver.

I hope you have a great time in my city, and if you have any more questions please just ask.

Inland Revenue

by iwys

Surprisingly the headquarters of the Inland Revenue, the government's tax administrator, is not in London, but in Nottingham. It moved here in the 1990s, and its futuristic building is one of the city's landmarks.

Pop and classics

by iwys about Royal Concert Hall

The Royal Concert Hall is a modern hall which hosts both pop and classical concerts. I've seen stars as diverse as Maxim Vengerov, Everything But The Girl, Vladimir Ashenazy and Craig David perform here. It is well-designed, so that even if you are sitting up in the second tier, you do not feel too far from the stage

Nottingham Castle

by amsterdam_vallon

Nottingham Castle was first built in 1068 by William the Conqueror on a narrow sandstone ridge. It was close to, but separate from, the Old English Borough of Nottingham.

The building that you can see today is the first of its kind in England inspired by Italian architecture. It was built by the Duke of Newcastle, William Cavendish and his son, Henry, during the period 1674-1679.

The castle is closely associated with the legend of Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham.


Walking tour of the Castle Ground:

Walk past the Robin Hood statue (1), and enter through the castle's medieval gatehouse (2). Meander through the colourful grounds of Nottingham Castle, taking in the award-winning flower displays on your way to the Victorian bandstand (3). Further up, pass the steps leading to the Eastern Terrace (4) and on to the back of the castle museum. Here you can find one of the cave entrances that take you underground, past the guard room (5) and on to the dungeon (6-7). Don't get locked in! Back on the surface, chill out with a trip around the museum's Long Gallery (8) and then up to the museum roof (9) for stunning views of Nottinghamshire. Exit the museum and take your leave - disappear down one of the soldier's tunnels (10), from which you can peer up Mortimer's Hole (11). Continue past the cannon positions (12) and exit at the bottom of castle rock, sparing a moment to have a look back at where you've been, as well as the Miller's cottage (13).

Major Oak in the Sherwood Forest

by nylo

the Major Oak.. associated with the Robin Hood Tale. Its a beautiful tree, and in 2002 it was listed as 1 of only 50 Great British Trees. The sherwood forest is just like a usual forest apart from this tree. You should be aware that like other famous natural structures it is fenced off, and has supports around the trunk and main branches, i assume to preserve the tree. If you love the story of Robin Hood like me, you will enjoy seeing this tree.
