Newest Review: ... the arch (past a rather clever dragonfly shaped bench) and here you'll find the main buildings on your left. There's another shop where you may just find a Robin Hood outfit, complete with bow and arrow set should any little merry men in your party be interested. Daddies like me on the other hand are far more likely to be struck by the delightful indoor and outdoor seating of the restaurant ... more

Whilst over at our 'local' National Trust property Belton House on Easter Sunday, I spotted a poster advertising the extra Easter events going on at Clumber Park. With an as ever uncertain weather forecast, I figured a quick 30 mile jaunt up the A1 on Easter Monday was well worth the risk, given that as paid up "Trusties" it wouldn't cost us a penny to try. ~~~~Getting there~~~~ As I said, it's very handily positioned off the A1 at the A57 intersection with the road to Sheffield. There's a big brown sign at the A1 exit and when you reach the roundabout take the A614 to Nottingham. Within a half a mile, you'll see a right turn, and there ... Read the complete review

Clumber Park must be one of the biggest parks in Britain. It simply is huge. Contrary to other parks in its neighbourhood (Nottinghamshire) such as Sherwood Forest, it is not just another woodland park.

Nottinghamshire has a great number of parks and other visitor attractions, but one of the very best of these is Clumber Park. Situated in the northern part of the county, Clumber Park is the former home of the Dukes of Newcastle, but now this 3,800 acre park is owned by The National Trust and is a very popular venue for a day out. The park is located about 4.5 miles south east of Worksop and about 1 mile from the A1/A57. The nearest train station is at Worksop, and there are local buses that go to the park. (Details from Traveline on 0870 608 2608) Access to the centre of the park costs £3 per car (free to members of The National Trust), but there are ... Read the complete review
