Nottingham gave the world Robin Hood, Raleigh bikes, John Player cigarettes and Boots the chemists. As if that wasn’t enough, Alan Sillitoe and D. H. Lawrence went to school here, Lord Byron’s ancestral pile is on the outskirts, and it was here that King Charles I raised his battle standard at the start of the Civil Wars – though few rallied to the cause. Local heroes include the cantankerous Brian Clough, fast bowler Harold Larwood, and William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army. 111 places in this fascinating city to intrigue, amuse and illuminate.
