'It’s not everyday you get to wander around amongst a herd of deer is it?'

Planning a trip to Nottingham? Great, you’re going to love it! Although we wholeheartedly recommend adding these amazing hidden gems to your things-to-do list ASAP!

1. White Rabbit Teahouse

Everyone loves a good afternoon tea, don’t they? And we’ll be honest with you, they don’t come much better than they do at White Rabbit Teahouse.

With a long list of fruit-infused teas, delicious cakes and mouth-watering all day breakfasts’ you’ll be spoilt for choice. Plus, all the vintage cutlery is super cute too.

2. Join the outdoor events at the Arboretum

During the summer months, the Arboretum hold outdoor events near enough every weekend, and there’s always something for everyone to enjoy.

From live music and pageants to Nottingham Pride, not only are all the events a really fun way to spend the day, but they tend to all be free too. Bonus!

3. Go deer spotting at Wollaton Hall

It’s not everyday you get to wander around amongst a herd of deer is it? That’s why, if you’re on a trip to Nottingham, we suggest you make time to visit Wollaton Hall.

Not only will you be able to take a one-of-a-kind selfie amongst all the glorious deer, but with its stunning 16th century buildings it’s the perfect day out for anyone who appreciates fine architecture and history too.
