Groupon’s Guide To Worksop
Visitors are invited to explore the town of Worksop, one of Nottinghamshire’s largest towns, also known as the ‘Gateway to the Dukeries’ due to its selection of Ducal properties.
One of the town’s landmarks is Mr Straw’s House, dating back to the 1920s, hosting a diversified collection of ancient furnishings and other domestic items. About a 12-minute drive southwards, the Sherwood Forest invites travellers to delve into the deep foliage and enjoy a merry ramble in the woods. Those wanting to admire an Elizabethan mansion and park may head to the Wollaton Hall and Park, while an archaeological site may be explored at the Creswell Crags, a limestone gorge.
