About the County

Much of Nottinghamshire's tourist industry is fired by the legend of Robin Hood, and his leafy home in Sherwood Forest. But the county's more factual history is equally fascinating.

Among the must-visit attractions are Nottingham Castle, and Old Market Square and Lace Market (all in Nottingham). There are also more than 450 caves beneath Nottingham, the largest complex of its kind in the UK.

The county also boasts numerous splendid parklands (such as Highfield Park) and spectacular country houses (such as Wollaton Hall).

The days of heavy engineering and coal production in Nottinghamshire are mostly gone, but today locals are employed in a range of sectors. Among them are retail (Boots is based here), energy (E.On has a large office here) and finance (Experian runs a big operation in the county).

And the University of Nottingham and the Nottingham Trent University both employ thousands, as does the NHS.
