Welcome to my new follower Pandy Potter


For Christmas this year our son and partner presented us with an extra Christmas gift, a weekend break. We could choose from a few hundred different hotels. We decided on Nottingham as it is one of the few places my husband being a retired coach driver hadn't been to.

So we left home on Friday morning and arrived in Nottingham before lunch. We parked the car in the park and ride and then went to the city centre.


First stop was a walk up to the Castle.







Robin Hood





The Castle was full of artefacts, treasures and art.









After the castle we spent the rest of the day wandering around the town.




Something nice to keep us going.




We had dinner at the hotel on the first night which was included as was breakfast on both mornings.

Saturday we went to Wollaton Hall in the morning.










In the afternoon we went to the David Attenborough Nature Reserve.












We spotted a Bullfinch, we have not seen one for years.







On Sunday we left for home but on the way back visited Warwick Castle.


































After Warwick Castle, we stopped of in Stratford-Upon-Avon.








Shakespeare's House.











Back home for a lovely welcome.

Fresh flowers and a lovely tea.





The perfect end to a wonderful weekend.
