This park was built around the Wollaton Hall that was designed by Robert Smythson and completed by Sir Francis Willoughby in 1588. The park stands on a natural hill three miles away from Nottingham and consists of five hundred acres of breathtaking gardens and open fields, where deer and other small mammals roam freely. Access to this park is free and permitted after 09:00 o’clock. The park also offers access to a botanical garden and social events.
The park is located alongside the Middleton Boulevard, facing the University of Nottingham and can be reached by car, tram, train or a sightseeing stroll.
By train and tube: the closest train station is Beeston Station, which is about half hour drive by bus (see below) from the park. So, getting to Wollaton Park by train might not be the best idea - you could as well take a direct bus instead.
By bus: Since it is a landmark attraction, there are a lot of ways you can arrive at the Wollaton Park by making use of the public transportations. Such lines are the: Y36, Eighteen, the Orange Line 35, the i4 and 21.
By car: you can get to the park by car via A52 Road, Wollaton Road, Middleton Boulevard or Woodside Road.
International: Skylink Express, a dedicated train line, stopping right at the terminal exit, will take you directly from the airport to the Broad Marsh, where you can take the i4 liner for the rest of the way.
