Wollaton Hall and Park, Nottingham

(4.5/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
Walk through the majestic Wollaton Hall and Park to see Elizabethan bedrooms, kitchens, wine cellars, stables, gardens, and servants' quarters. The grand mansion was built in the 1580s for Sir Francis Willoughby, a wealthy industrialist. Legend has it that Queen Elizabeth I snubbed Willoughby’s previous house, prompting him to charge architect Robert Smythson to construct a mansion so grandiose it would leave all future visitors, royal and commoner alike, absolutely speechless. Since opening to the public in 1926, the site has been home to the city’s natural history museum, with a collection of nearly 750,000 specimens of birds, insects, and plants. The mansion’s calendar is full of special events, guided tours, and family activities. Skip the long lines by booking online.
