Number 10 - Nottingham Castle and Ye Olde Trip

The Comfort Lettings Team took advantage of the lovely spring weather to visit the Nottingham Castle followed by liquid refreshment at the Country's oldest pub. Find out what we thought!

The earliest accounts that make reference to ‘Robin Hood’ appear around the end of the 14th century and mention the likes of Little John and Will Scarlett, however omit other characters commonly associated with the characters in popular culture like Maid Marian or Friar Tuck.

The castle at Nottingham is a vast and imposing building sat on a rocky outcrop that can be seen for miles around. Much of the original castle that was first built has been destroyed, but within the grounds are still clues to the original development of the site alongside its current state today.

The Castle enjoys views over the converted Park Estate, which has long been the jewel in the crown of Nottingham’s residential property market.

Team In Notts

After the intriguing history lesson at the Castle, the Comfort Team took the short stroll down the road to Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem – commonly referred to as Britain’s Oldest Pub. A must-visit with lots of local cask ales to try, the Inn is cut into the side of the Castle Rock and much of the pub itself is housed within caves. The staff were particularly friendly and more than happy to explain some of the pubs interesting past.

Everyone decided that it was a great way to kick off the reviews of Nottingham’s best attractions and we are already looking forward to next months’ instalment!
