Come and explore this picturesque town, bursting with tradition and character, often referred to as ‘The jewel in Nottinghamshire’s crown’. Explore the magnificent Southwell Minster, with its unique pepperpot spires, then stroll along to the town’s centre to find a good selection of independent shops, friendly pubs selling traditional ales, cosy cafés and restaurants. On Saturdays the Market Square hosts a lively market.

Southwell is proud of its many festivals including The Gate to Southwell Festival, The Bramley Festival and The Southwell Library Poetry Festival.
