The Nottingham Trail

A new self-guided walking trail has been created in Nottingham to highlight the main attractions and points of interest around the city.

The walk, named The Nottingham Trail, features a selection of audio, video, images and facts to spread the stories of the popular landmarks around Nottingham. 

It is the first self-guided walking trail to incorporate all of the leading tourist locations within one guide. 

The trail has been designed by Spinning Clock, a Nottingham based creative agency.

The Nottingham Trail can be completed with the use of the GuidiGO app and website that will guide you to all the sights.

The circular tour of Nottingham, which is estimated to take around two hours, looks at many tourism hotspots, including the bronze statue of Robin Hood, who is known as Nottingham’s famous son.

Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, which dates back to 1189 and claims to be the oldest inn in England, the Galleries of Justice Museum which dates back to 1375, and Nottingham Castle are some of the attractions that can be visited. The childhood home of poet Lord Byron and Jesse Boot’s first chemist are also pointed out on the trail.

The walking route also includes some more contemporary sights, such as the Sky Mirror at Nottingham Playhouse, the National Videogame Arcade and Nottingham Contemporary.

Nick McDonald, councillor and portfolio holder for business, growth and transport, explained: “The Nottingham Trail will be a great way for both local residents and visitors to see the city and some of our top attractions.”

Paul Southby, chairman of marketing for Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, said: “We are delighted to have partnered with Nottingham City Council in delivering an exciting new walking trail for Nottingham.

“This new free trail showcases the best that Nottingham has to offer.” Paul added.
