In mid-October, we took a trip up’t Nor’ for my birthday. We planned to stay with some friends in Middlesborough and then head to Whitby on my actual birthday, but with my birthday falling on a Wednesday we decided why not extend the trip and go up a few days earlier. Trying to find a halfway point we landed on Nott’m for our destination and spent a few days there exploring before heading further north for my twenty-second birthday.
While in Nottingham we did a ton of things. We went to the Goose Fair, the Justice museum, saw the sky mirror, Lord Byron’s house, the Robin Hood statue, ate the worlds best pizza and doughnotts: as well as exploring some pretty cool shops and restaurants. Oh, and I got my nose pierced! …something I have wanted for such a long time but never actually gone through with it.
Nottingham was an amazing place, and somewhere I know I’ll want to revisit again and again. There were so many other places and restaurants where we didn’t get to explore or experience so another trip is definitely needed.
