The gateway to rural Nottinghamshire

Situated on the edge of Sherwood Forest, Worksop has the best of natural Nottinghamshire on its doorstep. As well as the legendary forest, which Robin Hood once roamed, Worksop is home to Clumber Park, a historic estate with a walled garden and Gothic Revival chapel. Feeling a bit adventurous? Visit Creswell Crags and Caves. Walk around the site for free, or book a tour with a guide who will tell you all about the history of the caves.

Pay a visit to Mr Straw's House

One of Worksop's most popular tourist attractions, this charming Edwardian building is a quirky museum about life in 1920s Worksop. The Straws moved into the house and for more than 60 years its interior remained almost untouched - the family eschewed most modern technology. Today, you can explore Mr Straw's House and discover how the eccentric family lived their lives in the early 20th century.
