I'm accompanying my husband on a business trip to Nottingham and besides shopping :) would like to do something more enriching. As my husband will be busy all day these tours or trips would have to be from 9-10ish to 5-6pm. Any must-see tours or things to do in the Nottingham area or close by? We may be staying in Derby about 20min away by car.
I am a decent traveller and have been to London many times - very familiar with the tube, cabs, buses etc. Though not in a few years. How safe is it for me to travel on public transportation and walk on my own? Are there places i should avoid or things to keep an eye on?
