Nottingham midway: Tripadvisor top-rated indoor attractions as the rain sets in
The October semester is underway in Nottingham and generally humid weather and breezes are on the way.
With thunderstorms forecast and colder weather to come, outdoor options are limited for outings with the kids.
Fortunately, there are plenty of indoor options in Nottingham for spending an afternoon and getting out of the house.
From exploring Nottingham’s fascinating cave system to exploring museums for a show, you are spoiled for choice.
And Tripadvisor has put together a list of indoor Nottingham attractions for a rainy day.
Here are some of the top rated indoor attractions in Nottingham on Tripadvisor:
National Museum of Justice
The National Justice Museum is an independent museum on High Pavement in the Lace Market district. The museum is housed in a former Victorian courtroom, prison and police station and therefore constitutes a historic site where an individual could be arrested, tried, convicted and executed.
City of Caves
City of Caves is a tourist attraction in Nottingham based on a network of caves, carved out of sandstone that have been used in various ways over the years as a tannery, pub caves, and air raid shelter.
Royal Theater and Royal Concert Hall
It had been far too long since we had all been able to savor the magic of the theater.
As the colder months roll in, now is the time to end a trip to the Theater Royal in Nottingham and then get warm for a wonderful show.
The Chicago theater classic is playing right now, and School of Rock is on the way.
Hopkinson and the Haunted Museum and Oddities
Shoppers can truly waste hours at this fascinating store right next to Nottingham Station.
It’s a vintage, antiques and art center spread over several floors and chock full of fashion, collectibles, quirks and everything in between.
You can grab a coffee at the Hops Bar and Coffee House or even get a tattoo if you feel like it, upstairs.
Nottingham Industrial Museum
The Nottingham Industrial Museum is a museum run by volunteers and located in part of the 17th century stables at Wollaton Hall. The museum won the 2012 Nottinghamshire Heritage Site of the Year award, a local honor awarded by Experience Nottinghamshire.
Motorpoint Arena is a multi-purpose indoor arena connected to the National Ice Center in the Lace Market area of Nottingham. The National Ice Center and Nottingham Arena were opened by Olympic gold medalist Jayne Torvill on April 1, 2000. The arena is the largest performance venue in the East Midlands.
Museum of Frame Knitters
Framework Knitting (the birthplace of the Nottingham lace industry) has come to life. Step back into another era, visit this Victorian time capsule, and learn how knitters lived and worked.
The museum includes two preserved workshops, a row of workers’ houses, a garden, a café, a shop, exhibition spaces and a chapel. Watch a frame knitter in action in the frameshop. Try out a Griswold sock machine and make your own scarf. Explore the historic cottages and learn how the manager and knitters lived and worked in the late 19th century.
