“mmerse yourself in the incredible story of the last English king to die in battle and the first to be DNA tested. Turn detective and travel back through time to uncover the plot lines, birth rights and family connections that combined to create an intricate story of medieval murder, mystery and mayhem. As you unravel the facts about the Wars of The Roses, you can find out how Richard rose to power and decide for yourself what really happened to the Princes in the Tower… Get caught in the middle of the Battle of Bosworth – feel the rumble of soldiers and the thunder of hooves as the Plantagenets and Tudors battle it out and where the King is cut down as he defends his crown. Fast-forward over 500 years to a car park in Leicester city centre where the amazing evidence-gathering that resulted in the discovery of the long-lost remains of King Richard III is revealed. Be inspired by the forensic science behind the identification of the remains and explore the techniques used to prove it was the lost king. In final homage to England’s last warrior king, you can see for yourself the very spot where King Richard III remained undiscovered for so long…”

History Museum
“Discover the people, companies and industries that made Nottingham famous around the world. Nottingham Industrial Museum has five galleries each relating to a key Nottinghamshire industry: textiles, transport, communication, mining and power. The museum has many wonderful artefacts and exhibits including a working Basford Beam engine and an original Thomas Humber Bicycle. And they are working to get more artefacts into working condition, so you can admire the local ingenuity and skills that went into Nottingham Lace and other exports. Nottingham Industrial Museum's collection encourages visitors to investigate Nottinghamshire’s rich industrial heritage. The museum is entirely run by volunteers who are on hand to show you around and answer your questions. Their regular events draw visitors from around the country and the team hope to see you at one soon. The museum welcomes children with regular activities and family oriented tours. The museum is an ideal part of any visit to Wollaton Hall and Deer Park, where it sits in and behind the 17th century stable block.”

“This is a lovely little stately home that is a little off the beaten track. Great space to walk, feed the ducks and sit by the lake. Little tea shop where you can get simple drinks and snacks and ice cream! Little playground that is very popular with younger children and fabulous dog walking favourite.”

Visit castle with museum, Trip to Jerusalem pub, but also the Museum of Justice, the caves, the designer shops, Nottingham Contemporary and a dozen more galleries, plus a great choice of restaurants and bars. Take the tram to go further and see Wollaton Hall. Much more - look at Visit Nottinghamshire, or the Culture trip sites. ”
