      Some Excellent Road Trips from Nottingham

      Located fairly centrall England, Nottingham is an excellent base to see the wide variety of landscapes and residential sigy inhts that England offers. Here are some ideas for day road trips to make with your Nottingham hired car:

      • Peak District National Park: the Peak District is a beautiful natural area that offers a wide range of sights, from the limestone valleys of Dovedale to the moorland plateaus of Kinder Scout. The Peak District starts around 30 miles northwest of Nottingham and is well worth exploring by rental car and foot alike. Bakewell is a great market town at which to stop for little shops and good lunch and is home to the Chatsworth House, where you can order some excellent cream tea in the spirit of Pride and Prejudice.
      • Stratford-upon-Avon: the great playwright William Shakespeare was born in this city, which is located just 70 miles south of Nottingham. You can stop at Warwick Castle along the way to make this a full day’s adventure.
      • The western coast of England: drive to Skegness (80 miles to the west) or Whitby (130 miles northwest) for some seaside recuperation. Skegness is conveniently close to Nottingham for a day-long road trip, though some say the area is too touristy. Whitby is a full hour drive farther away from Nottingham than Skegness is, but the seaside town is a favourite destination for visitors and residents alike.
