Tourist board launches brand-new Nottingham and Nottinghamshire visitor guide in bid to attract tourists

Visit Nottinghamshire, the official tourism body for the region, has launched a brand-new guide to Nottingham and Nottinghamshire in an effort to inspire visitors to book a trip to the area and boost the local economy. The magazine-style guide will be distributed to visitor attractions, hotels and Tourist Information Centres across the country and is also available to collect in the Nottingham Tourism Centre just off Old Market Square. Visitors can also request, view, download and print the guide online at

The guide, which features Ezekial Bone of the Robin Hood Town Tour on the cover, showcases the very best of what the region has to offer, with a range of editorial features providing information about the history, legends and culture of Nottingham as well as ideas for what visitors can see and do during their trip.

The new visitor guide includes editorial features about our legendary hero Robin Hood, Sherwood Forest, the vast caves network, the Mayflower 400 anniversary, Nottingham Castle’s £30 million regeneration, local festivals, foodie experiences, the city’s thriving independent shopping scene, ideas for low-cost days out and a comprehensive events round-up for 2020 – demonstrating the vast range of experiences that Nottingham has to offer for all types of visitors.

It also includes a comprehensive directory of attractions and things to do, shopping, accommodation options as well as drinking and dining, making it as easy as possible for visitors to plan and book a visit.

Kinga Kapias, Acting Marketing and Communications Manager at Visit Nottinghamshire, said:

“Nottinghamshire’s visitor economy is growing year on year, and it’s now worth over £1.9bn and supports over 23,000 full time jobs. Our website,, had a record-breaking 4 million page views last year, suggesting that vast numbers of visitors are now using it to research their trip online, but we have found that there’s still a very strong demand for printed media that you can pick up and flick through on a coffee table or in a hotel room.”

“It’s so important that we showcase our wonderful tourism offer to as many potential visitors as possible – whether they prefer to view information online or in a physical, printed format – and this handy, easy-to-read magazine helps us reach a wider audience and boost our visitor economy.”
