Arrived in Nottingham late Sunday afternoon. We caught the train from London which took about 2 and a half hours. Couldnt imagine a Bigger change from London.
We checked into our apartment - Cranbrook Apartments - and went for a walk to get supplies. It was a strange place, didn't feel in danger, but didn't feel comfortable either and we were glad to get back to the room.
Monday was very relaxing, we picked Callum up for the day and did the main tourist spots - the Galleries of Justice, Notttingham Caves and walk up to the Nottingham Castle. Had a drink in the oldest pub in the UK "ye olde road to Jerusalem", which is a gorgeous little pub built into the back of the castle. Sophie and Marcus loved having Callum back for the day, there was much sibling love floating around, it will be interesting to see how long it lasts in Paris.
Had a lovely dinner at a Spanish tapas place, lovely food and great sangria. Kids loved it despite until protests and votes for the sushi train next door. Our first family dinner together in the UK and it was a fun night. Took Callum back to the hotel then headed back ourselves, getting ready to go to York.
Can't say I would come back to Nottingham, but it was good to have a change of pace and just wander around without worrying about getting lost or having Marcus wander off. Looking forward to York, have heard it is lovely. Just hope we can figure out the roads!
