Why not wander in the same forest that the legend, Robin Hood once did? Find a day tour or if you have time, try out the two-day tour of Nottingham and Sherwood Forest.

Old Trafford (Manchester)

Visit the nearby iconic football ground Old Trafford, commonly called “The Theatre of Dreams” and sit in your favourite player’s seat in the dressing room, walk through the players’ tunnel towards the pitch and sit in the manager’s seat in the dugout.

Before the big game, head over to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens and Glasshouses. With Fifteen acres of beautiful landscaped gardens and over 7000 plants, shrubs and trees, and a new Butterfly House – it is an ideal way to spend a calm day before the action begins.
