Latest reviews | Events in Mansfield | 10 Places to Stay

When standing in the bustling market place, a busy bar or shopping in one of the town’s many retail outlets, it's hard to believe that a 15 minute drive in any direction puts you firmly in rural surroundings, away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
But that is what Mansfield offers - the best of both worlds. From a thriving nightlife and enviable shopping, to tranquil forests and idyllic rural surroundings, this bustling historic market town has it all.
Ambitious regeneration projects in recent years have transformed Mansfield in terms of retail, leisure, housing and industry. It is a desirable place to work and live and has a wide range of attractions for visitors. Mansfield claims to be the leading town outside the city of Nottingham, and there's no doubt it has something for everyone.
The bustling 700-year-old open market is the hub of the town. The market operates six days a week and is complemented by shopping centres, retail parks and department stores along with boutiques and specialist stores.
There are family attractions within the district ranging from the ultimate in swimming fun at Water Meadows to local heritage at the Museum and Art Gallery. Mansfield is a lively town with plenty of activities that will fill a day visit or warrant an even longer stay.
Mansfield’s booming leisure sector combines great shopping, loads of sport, fantastic places to eat and drink, a touch of theatre and the arts and the great escape only a stones throw away in nearby Sherwood Forest.
And Mansfield is packed with historic buildings, churches and the 'Centre Tree', said to be the historical centre of Sherwood. Unique visitor attractions such as White Lion Yard are tucked away off the busy streets of Mansfield – the site is home to caves and buildings, most of which have been used since the early 18th century, and one building even dates back to Tudor Times.
