Southwell Minster is a must for those staying in the area for any time. The Minster is a magnificent example and should not be missed.
Pick up one of the guides for children, which are far more fun and intelligible.
Search for the wooden mice and many other exciting items.
The chapter house is worth a journey to see, with world class stone carving. You will enjoy some of the humour of those gifted stonemasons.

After visiting the Minster, visit the Saracen's Head where Charles 1st was arrested.

The high quality antique and ladies clothes shops are worth visiting , but hide your cheque books.

Also visit the The Workhouse , run by the National Trust.
