Curious About, Self Guided Tours, Nottinghamshire


Explore, Discover and Enjoy the most spectacular towns and cities in Nottinghamshire, in a unique and fun way, with Curious About - self-guided walks for the Curious!

Our quirky, treasure hunt style, heritage walks will keep everyone intrigued and amused – there’s detailed directions, maps, clues (with answers in the back!), pictures to match, interesting historical snippets and stories about the people that have shaped it, and lots of suggestions for things to see and do on the way. You can buy in booklet or instant download format (to print at home or to use immediately on your mobile device).

A Curious About walk is a fun & social activity for all the family & friends - where everyone can be actively involved, helping with directions, matching pictures, reading fascinating facts and finding answers to clues. Each walk takes approximately 1-2 hours to complete and is suitable for everyone (from age 6 upwards). Every booklet contains 2 walks, and each walk takes 1-2 hours to complete. Available daily, printed booklets are sent out on the same working day, first class. Downloads are available instantly.

There are over 80 locations in the UK where you can enjoy a Curious About Walk, 3 of which are in Nottinghamshire – Nottingham, Newark and Southwell.

Explore the heart of each town and city, and not just the obvious places - we make sure you visit the unusual, quirky and intriguing ones too - uncovering the personality of the place you're visiting. Added to this we provide compelling stories about the history around you, whilst you find answers to clues along the way - so you see everything there is to see, and have fun too! How well do you know the UK?

Discover "hidden treasures", new facts, new people, new events and new experiences. Work out for yourself what's important, at your own speed, and level of interest. Detect answers to our addictive clues, match pictures to places, follow our detailed directions, and follow your progress on our comprehensive maps.

We think you'll love these walks of discovery, whatever your age. But don't just take our word for it - here's what one person said:
"We spent a wonderful day yesterday, in clear blue sunshine, walking round Bristol. We found the guide easy to use & most informative. The choice of ending for walk 1 & start for walk 2 was inspired, we had a lovely Tapas lunch just over the road in between the 2 walks. Thank you!".
