Nottingham, situated east of the River Leen and north of the River Trent, is the second-largest city in the East Midlands. It is well-known for its lace industry, and at one time Nottingham was considered `the lace capital of the world`. Nottingham Castle, built on the orders of William the Conqueror just two years after the Norman invasion of England, served as the Royal residence of King Edward III, and later King Henry IV`s wife, Queen Joan. North of town, the 1,000-acre Sherwood Forest is forever associated with the legend of Robin Hood, who was said to have stolen from the rich, giving their money to the poor.
