    Seven things we love about the Notts attractions in the Lonely Planet’s Ultimate United Kingdom Travelist

    Most of us have heard the news by now that a whopping seven Nottinghamshire attractions made travel guide publisher Lonely Planet’s top 500 travel experiences in the UK. We’re feeling pretty smug about being recognised by such a large-scale, well-trusted publisher, and the broad range of attractions identified (from museums and nature reserves to heritage sites and pubs) is testament to the wonderful variety of what’s on offer here.

    Let's talk about Nottingham's ginious Redsmith Distillery

    We took a trip to Redsmith Distillery to find out more about the award-winning gin crafted here in the heart of Nottingham and get an exclusive taste of the new Outlaw Gin.

    We met up with creator Wayne Asher at the small but perfectly formed distillery in Sneinton Market, where he regaled us with tales about how he took his first steps in the world of spirit making, a far cry from his former career in aerospace and aircraft engines.
