East Midlands

Locating you...

East Midlands is the home of some of the best food in Britain, and possibly, the world. Melton Mowbray Pork Pies, Stilton cheese and the mighty Bakewell tart all come from the East Midlands, as does the magnificent Lincolnshire Sausage. Also on the list of foodie exports are Red Leicester and Bramley apples.

For outdoorsy types, it’s hard to beat the Peak District, where the beauty of moors, dales and rivers all come together. With charming market towns and villages as well as incredible landscapes, the Peak District is as suited to a relaxing break as it is for one of adventure. You can also explore Sherwood Forest and look out for Robin Hood’s most famous hiding place, the Major Oak. If you’re a fan of Robin Hood, possibly the world’s favourite folk hero, there are endless options for following in his footsteps around Nottinghamshire.

You can also enjoy national treasures like the glorious Chatsworth House in Derbyshire, or explore the birthplace of DH Lawrence, who drew a lot of influences from Eastwood, near Nottingham, where he grew up.

The National Space Centre, just two miles from the centre of Leicester is a fantastic option for a day out with all the family, whatever the weather. It has something for kids of all ages, including fascinating films.

Formula 1 fans are spoilt for choice in the East Midlands, with both Silverstone and Donington Park to visit and football fans are spoilt for choice with teams such as Nottingham Forest, Leicester, Derby and Notts County.

If you’re looking for something a bit different for a day out in East Midlands, the World Egg Throwing Federation is based in Lincolnshire.
