  • Nottingham Road Town

Rumour has it that the Nottingham Road Hotel is haunted "by a lady ‘of loose morals’", where she has been spotted on numerous occasions, specifically in room 10.

While you’re in town, also try to visit the Nottingham Road Brewery, located on at Rawdon’s Hotel. It's a microbrewery, try their Pickled Pig Porter, Whistling Weasel Pale Ale, and Pye-Eyed Possum Pilsner.
