WOLLATON HALL AND PARK

Wollaton Hall and Park is the perfect place to spend a Spring’s day. The hall is set in 500 acres of parkland and houses a Natural History Museum.

Beyond the Wollaton Hall, there is a beautiful greenhouse full of colorful roses (in which you can take your next Instagram pictures). .

The Park is full of deers resting and there is also a picturesque lake that makes the park even more charming.

ARBORETUM

One of Nottingham’s “green lungs”, the Arboretum is a park close to the city centre.

It is conceived as a place in which to relax, so grab a book or a basket full of sandwiches

and enjoy this green sanctuary that is said to be the inspiration behind J.M. Barrie’s tale “Peter Pan”.

TRENT RIVER

We believe it is essential to go for a walk to have a full Spring experience.

This said, we recommend you a walk with your friends

(or alone if you want to look like Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice) on the shores of Trent River.

It has a peaceful environment, far away from the noise of the city centre and surrounded by ducks you can feed while walking.

HIGHFIELDS PARK

Highfields park is next to University of Nottingham’s University Park campus.

Its boating lake and beautiful cascade are another nature’s spot where you can lie down

and rest without feeling guilty for “staying home with this great weather”.

This park is a quick escape from the crowded streets of the city centre without spending a single pound!

COCO TANG

This speciality coffee and cocktail bar located in Lace Market has a Vietnamese - style

outdoor Roof Garden where time flies during Spring’s weather.

They serve a wide range of rare teas, authentic Vietnamese coffee and,

what makes this place a “must-go”, oriental bakery, including Japanese Roll cake and Malasyan Pandan cake.

ALTO

Inside the Corner House you can find Alto, an independent modern bar with a relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere.

The best thing about Alto is its luxurious outdoor terrace, furnished.

with lounging day beds where you can enjoy a cocktail and probably never want to leave.

THEA CAFFEA

Have you ever tried the typical British afternoon tea? Even if the answer is yes, you should go to Thea Caffea,

You can choose between enjoying your afternoon tea in the outside sitting or inside the cozy café.

The menu includes cakes, teas and sandwiches, among other things, and the great news is you get a very generous amount of food for the price!

CREAMS CAFE

Spring weather isn’t fully enjoyed until you have eaten ice cream!

Creams Café is an independent food brand that claims to serve the authentic Italian gelato ice cream.

And ice cream isn’t the only thing you can order at Creams Café…

There are all kinds of desserts, such as sundaes, waffles, crepes or puddings. Pure joy for dessert lovers!

CANALHOUSE

Canalhouse is a unique venue located near the canal.

. It offers an extensive choice of real ale and the largest selection of “World Beers” in the East Midlands (over 150 beers over the world).

The experience gets better with the option to enjoy your beer sitting in the covered garden situated by the canal side.

200 DEGREES

The canal is such a good place to enjoy Spring weather that we couldn’t pick only one place near the canal for our top ten places list.

On the opposite side of the street, 200 degrees Coffee Shop is waiting for you.

We chose the one located in Carrington Street because it has views to the canal and great natural lighting (on sunny days).

Drinking your coffee while eating a caramel salted brownie in this coffee shop is a treat you must give yourself.
