Central England offers a huge variety of landscapes and places to enjoy and explore so let’s sample some of the highlights it has to offer by strolling in Nottinghamshire, staying in Leicestershire and visiting special sites in Staffordshire & Derbyshire.

And no car needed – a minibus will transport us the short distances across the borders!

The plan is:
To arrive at Nottingham train station early afternoon on Thursday and then to embark on a guided tour with a local blue badge guide to discover this famous city before being transferred to our base at the spa hotel Yew Lodge where we will settle in and enjoy dinner together at their New York Italian style restaurant, Marco’s.

The next day we will have a full day; our first visit will be to the amazing National Memorial Arboretum where we will take an exclusive tailor-made buggy tour, to discover this super-special and moving site of remembrance.
Our second visit in the afternoon will be to the National Trust’s unique ‘unstately’ stately home and gardens of Calke Abbey, which vividly portrays a period the decline of numerous country houses (a la ‘Downtown’!).
Dinner together at ‘Marco’s’ in the evening.

On Saturday we will take a leisurely morning to enjoy the facilities of the hotel before transferring to Nottingham with free time to explore the city with many options, including perhaps lunch in England’s oldest inn(!?) before taking our return train.
