The city of Nottingham, in the hills of north-central England 105 mi/170 km northwest of London, was headquarters for the legendary Robin Hood. Don't go out of your way to see it, but if it's convenient, plan a few hours for the Nottingham Castle Museum (local historical displays and art), Wollaton Hall (natural history and industrial displays) and the Galleries of Justice Museum.
Nearby sights include Belvoir Castle (gorgeous setting), Newstead Abbey (home of Lord Byron; his grave site is at Hacknall Church) and the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum (in Eastwood).
