Worksop is a large town of over 40,000 people in the north of Nottinghamshire. The town lies on the River Ryton, and is around 30 miles from Nottingham and Newark. The town is known as the “Gateway to the Dukeries” because of the four, now obsolete, ducal sites in close proximity to each other towards the south of the town. Clumber House, Thoresby Hall, Welbeck Abbey and Worksop Manor are all in the same area; there are fewer than 20 ducal sites in the whole of England.

The National Trust owned Mr Straw’s House is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Worksop. The unassuming semi-detached Edwardian house changes on entry into a 1920’s museum, with original artefacts from the era, set out as if someone was to return home at any minute.

In Worksop town centre itself, Worksop Priory church is an important heritage landmark dating back over 900 years. Whilst much of the original building was destroyed with the dissolution of the monasteries, it has been carefully restored and remains an active centre of worship.

The town still hosts an active market on Wednesday’s, Friday’s and Saturday’s exhibiting small businesses from the local area. Worksop offers a variety of choices for eating out with plenty of cafés, restaurants and village pubs to suit all tastes and budgets.
