The East Midlands city of Nottingham, famed for its Lace making and the legend of Robin Hood, is home to two universities: Nottingham Trent University and the University of Nottingham. Many of the industrial buildings in the city have been redeveloped and have helped modern day Nottingham become a thriving centre for education and commerce. The Lace Market, which is to the south of Hockley, has many streets full of red brick warehouses which have been converted into apartments, bars and restaurants. Adams Building is now used by New College Nottingham.
Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem (The Trip), partially built into the cave system beneath Nottingham Castle, is a contender for the title of "England's Oldest Pub" due to its supposed establishment in 1189. However, The Bell Inn on the Old Market Square, and Ye Olde Salutation Inn (The Salutation) on Maid Marian Way, have both supposed to have disputed this claim. Whichever is the case it is safe to say that Nottingham has several public houses that date back to around the 11th century, or perhaps earlier.
There are two main shopping centres in Nottingham: Victoria Centre and the Broadmarsh Centre. The Victoria Centre was established on the site of the former Nottingham Victoria railway station, and was the first to be built in the city.
Located in the county of Gloucestershire, the historic city of Gloucester lies on the River Severn and is close to the Welsh border. Gloucester is a friendly, relaxed and safe city. Recent developments have seen the city emerge as a key regional centre with a lifestyle and culture of its own. It is entirely possible to while away an entire afternoon and evening in one of the many coffee shops and pubs.
In the heart of the city in College Green is the Norman cathedral with its fan vaulted cloisters and great east window. The nearby pedestrianised shopping area can be reached by a walk down narrow cobbled streets, passing ancient buildings on the way. From the shopping area it is a short walk to the Victorian Docks with its impressive converted warehouses. In the dock you will see many different kinds of vessels from narrow boats to sea going ships. Pleasure boats also depart from here that will take you on a journey through the past when Gloucester was a thriving commercial port.
The wider Gloucester Quays area is a favourite for visitors, with a great mix of waterside museums, bars, cafes, restaurants and Designer Outlet shopping plus beautiful new communal squares, walkways and dramatic public art, all nestling comfortably alongside the docks’ maritime heritage.
