Nottingham Old Market Square is the biggest market square in Britain and holds an annual Goose Fair, one of Europe's largest travelling fairs dating back to 1541 where you can experience everything from white-knuckle rides to Victorian side stalls.

The Jerusalem Inn is so named as it was visited by the knights on their travels to the crusades in the Holy Land, Many of the interior rooms are caves carved from the rock.
