Renowned for its varied landscapes, industrial heritage and atmospheric market towns, the East Midlands is a wonderful place to explore. The area is steeped in history and strewn with castles, battlefields, old mills and potteries. Here you will find some of England’s finest country estates and stately homes – many featured in films and on TV. There are also gardens galore, and plenty of quality local produce to enjoy at one of the many farmers’ markets.

As well as a paradise for walkers and climbers, there is a huge network of bridleways and cycle paths if you want to up the pace a little. Alternatively, enjoy a relaxing boat trip along a meandering river, or cast a fishing line into a sparkling reservoir full of trout and carp. Thrill-seekers will find plenty of exciting activities, from white-water rafting to tank driving.

If you’re after culture, Nottingham boasts excellent theatres, showcasing both contemporary and classical performances, and there are concert halls, museums and art galleries across the region.
