Things to do in Nottinghamshire
I'm going to be around Nottinghamshire over a coming weekend I'm wondering if there are any good wildlife parks, Zoo's, bird of prey sanctuaries and so on.
Anyone from the Notts area have any suggestions or any better ideas of things to do?

I am not from Nottinghamshire but there does seem to be a website just made for the job:
Student discounts and offers to do in Nottingham
The site is keyword searchable and despite the student reference in the title above does not seem to be limited to students alone.

Maybe it's because I was searching specifically for zoos, I'm really looking for a personal recommendation from people who have been to places in the area rather than taking a gamble on a website.

I was just looking at the Galleries of Justice Museum, they could be interesting.

I have been to the castle, the caves and Sherwood Forest and they were all good, especially the caves

Apart from getting shot (only joking!)
Wollaton Park is good for a walk, Deer, "lake" etc
Plenty of Pubs in the centre, but Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem is a must for all drinkers!, just down the road from the Castle.
There are not really any Zoo's, mainly places such as parks (old stately homes) such as Rufford & Clumber
Are you staying in Notts? Know the area much?

The open air ice rink is open in Nottingham City Centre, I think everyone else has covered the others I can think of! If you're looking for good food and like Indian Cuisine, try Memsaab or 4550 Miles from Dehli in the City centre (though booking in advance is a necessity and it's fairly expensive... but worth it). Thai wise, there's a brilliant place in Beeston (Yod Siam).

Another vote here for Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem :-) Quality drinking establishment.

Thanks for the suggestions all.

Also there is only one reason to go Nottingham and that is a trip to Frankie and Bennies...
