Looks like free fitness when you click the link?
Pity you didn't put this on earlier the lessons started in January
thanks for posting this , we had a great day out Rufford Abbey Country Park
I just rang Nottingham cit Council and she said " yes the car parking charges still apply"
Thanks for posting this, I do hope your wrong Marty! kind of defeats the object if that's true
Is this really free? It looks like you still have to pay £6 per car or £1 per person on foot/bike (just to enter the grounds at Newstead).
Good for Newstead Abbey but Nottingham Castle is not even worth going for free!
Kids, pack your bags, we're going to Nottingham!
Did anyone here go i was up by the castle with yoda and the lightsabers had alot of parents with kids turn up
How random, a friend has just told me about this as she wants me to go with her. Apparently there is 'medieval fighting, Star Wars style.'
Nice work have some heat
my daughter went last friday with her friend and enjoyed it
Thanks for the advice, I think I will give it a miss now
About 8 minutes, that's as long as it takes for it to soak in that it has little grounds, you can't get in the 'castle' and as other posters have mentioned it has a lovely 1960#s council building feel to it all. Go to the Olde Trip pub underneath and have a pint in one of the caves instead !
If you're expecting an old castle with dungeons and everything one would expect from a castle you will be VERY disappointed. If on the other hand you want to see a building that has plasterboard and strip lighting more associated with modern buildings and not too dissimilar to your local council offices you may be pleased.
There is no castle in Nottingham. Despite being called Nottingham 'castle' there is no castle to see. Check on line before visiting to avoid disappointment.
Simspot is good (if you like flight simulators), Gallaries of Justice, Wollaton hall and park, Greens windmill
The Nottingham Museum/Gallery was quite nice, I went there last week, but as others have said all that is left of the "castle" is the walls.
Recommendations for better places please as I will be there for 2 days next month.
Any recommendations im going soon for a day out?
it is dead easy to do, took a min. Where is your free parking?
FREE parking in Victoria Centre after 5pm on wed nights for the run up to xmas too. No registration needed
Wow. You need to register hahahhahahhaa. Ours been free every Thursday free parking without registered
every little helps hot cheers Thank You hot
have you been recently? I took the kids a couple of months ago and had a great day out. With the Christmas market on too and think it will be really nice. Each to their own.
Thanks for sharing, any idea how much it is to see santa? Heat added x
The castle that isn't a castle you mean! Used to always be free to enter, refuse to pay to visit what is nothing more than a grand house built on the castle grounds.
Looks ace - wish I didn't live in Sussex! I wonder if this is a English Heritage deal? *googles frantically*
Why not try Hull Fair !!!!! It's the largest traveling fair in Europe ..... 11th to the 19th of October .
Was rather disappointed with it tbh. Plus rides are expensive. The bigger are £4+. Air is £5 n didnt appear to last that long.
Same poo different year though. They used to move stuff around a 10 years+ back so it felt different each year. But for the last few years everything is in the same spot, gets boring fast now. And the stalls, wtf happened there? Used to have a wide mixture of all sorts of things to buy, now it's just food and sweet stalls with the odd Jamaican or Chinese stall selling necklaces and t shirts. Used to be so so much more. Would love them to mix it up a bit.
As always, admission to the ground is FREE!
I'll maybe come along and have a Gander.......
Extra charge for caves/cellars - £3
have always found Nottingham Castle which does not look like a castle now one of the most boring museum's to go and visit. Having said that, the Brewhouse Yard museum is a better place to spend time. You may as well go to Wollaton Hall.
Fair point as on their site it says: Nottingham Castle - a magnificent 17th century ducal mansion built on the site of the original Medieval Castle. Now the city's main museum and art gallery. Still a free day for a family out and a saving on the usual admission
Cold it's not even a Castle.......... Here is a rough idea of what it used to look like when it was a castle. :)
Thanks a good post :)
True about the castle and that it use to be free. However as they do Charge and this is a deal site then it is still a deal. Been there today and the kids really enjoyed it.
It's always been free, when did they start charging? It's not even a castle but a house built on the site!
Rip-off. It used to be free!
