nottingham lace museum claims to have interest for 10-13 year olds. as a former ten year old who was dragged round and forced to look at hankerchiefs for an hour i can safely say this is a massive lie. i recommend you to the calverton wasp sanctuary.

My speech isn't going to be that long. I'll just say I'm popping to the loo.

Ooh, this site is great for finding hidden bits of Nottingham. That tunnel looks well scary.

Nottingham seems to be a land full of wonderments. I am (well) excited about getting into adventures!

Is it better than York? 'Cause I loved York.

Hey, I did a Nottingham map a while ago with a few Notts city based landmarks on it. I've added a few more relevant ones, like the direction to Sam & Lisa's do. Do people want to add useful bits to it using my sexy colour-coded key and stick it up on your Facebook? Feel free. It's better than Jamie's old one. This might be wildly uneccessary, BUT I LOVE BEING HELPFUL.

the tales of robin hood is essentially the lidl jorvick viking centre. come see our terrible decades old dog earred papier mache models which bear little to no resemblence to actual people. come see a film poster for robin hood prince of theives. thats it.

the jewel in the crown of nottingham is the 70s nightclub 'flares' next door to the 80s nightclub (with revolving floor) 'reflex'. it's like an actual time machine.

Maid Marion Way, Shakespeare Street and Milton Street?

Low Pavement and High Pavement?

God I've missed England.

Also, I am 90% sure there was an '80s club in York also called Reflex. What this means, I'm not sure.

why are you trying to steal my map acclaim? why have you always been jealous of my success? why can't you be happy for me?

York's alright. But there are too many tourists there for my liking. And my brother lives there.

Embrace change, Jamie. Richard's map is clearly superior.

Reflex is a horrible chain place. There are 43,765 Reflexes in England alone.

I couldn't figure out what York does today other than cater to tourists. There were only small shops and rowing students. Plus the train thing we didn't go to.

Something tells me they're owned by the same people. Call me a genius, but that's what I believe.

The important thing is, I'm buying lace gloves somewhere. Anywhere. The more I think about them, the more I find them totally necessary to my life.

I wish the Robin Hood statue looked like Kevin Costner.

If that statue is anything to go by Robin Hood was a midget. Seems to me he relied on Big John to steal from the rich. I bet he had a high-pitched voice, too.

Reflex AND Flares. It's like travelling in time!

I went to Reflex once. It was about 5pm and empty, I drank a pint of Carling whilst standing on the revolving dancefloor on my own for half an hour, then left. I'm such a character.

Jamie, your map shamed the whole family. I couldn't let it lie.

Isn't the Brian Clough statue up soon? More statue/photo for fun everyone. Lets take our own broccoli to spread around the statue base.
