Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem


Come and visit us at The Trip and find out why countless numbers of people from all corners of the globe come back again and again to soak up a piece of England’s colourful, and sometimes bloody, past!

On stepping inside, visitors to England’s oldest Inn will immediately sense that they truly are taking a step back in time.

Whether you are simply looking for a refreshment while you drink in the history of England’s Oldest Inn, or whether you are looking to sample some choicest fayre as you contemplate the wealth of heritage, there is a bar, lounge or room at Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem to suit your needs.

The visitor to the Inn will notice as they step into the Inn that it is a step into something of a cross between an inn and a museum.

Another point of interest in the Ward Room, is the fireplace. Once having chimneys that emerged through the top of the rock, they also had the added benefit of only needing to be swept every thirty years or so, due to a large chamber behind the fireplace.

The sharp-eyed visitor to the Trip will notice a black painted wall on the right near the stairway to the upstairs lounge. This area houses the Chimney Alcove, featuring a breathtaking chimney that once emerged through the top of the rock beneath the walls of Nottingham Castle, reputedly having a secret entrance to the network of caves that joined up with Mortimer’s Room, although that entrance is now blocked off. When this alcove or chamber was eventually opened up in 1996, seven and a half tons or more than 50 sacks of soot and sand were removed over three day building operation!

Located in the Cellars is an old cockfighting pit and part of the Castle Gaol was said to be housed in the cellars at one time. This included the condemned cell, a small cell with a very low ceiling with small holes drilled to allow a little air to flow through. The Gaoler would have sat just outside the cells on the ‘Gaoler’s Chair’ which was etched out of the rock and can still be seen today.

Cellar tours are available and will give you all the details you crave if you are keen on history. You may need to book in advance, especially in peak season. You will see the speaking tube that was bored through to the castle for ordering beer and the cock pit, the extensive amount of barrels and much more but most importantly you will be able to pour your own pint! To book call 0115 947 3171.
