The county of Nottinghamshire is situated in the central regions of England and is divided into eight districts. The city of Nottingham is the birthplace of D.H Lawrence, the famous author but is more famously known for the legends of Robin Hood and Sherwood Forrest, which was once a royal hunting forrest. 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 oldest pub in England resides in Nottingham and dates back to 1189 AD. 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.
