Because of its rich historical heritage, the East Midlands boasts an abundance of historical castles and magnificent homes in which figures of the past, those who shaped the region, once lived. Set amidst rolling emerald hills and striking rock faces, these old-world spectacles entice locals and visitors alike in their charm and grace. Some of the better known castles include Ashby de la Zouch, Kirby Muxloe, Bolsover, Peveril, and Tattershall.
The towns within the East Midlands are well developed, offering their inhabitants sophisticated shopping outlets, plenty of exciting and fun activities and a bustling nightlife.
The natural allure of the area is conveyed by its dense forest and gorgeous mountain ranges. The Shivering Mountain is just one of these. Formally known as Mam Tor, this mountain is situated just south of Edale and is called the Shivering Mountain because of the way that the shale and grit stone flake from its cliff faces, sometimes even sliding down the mountain in awesome power.
The East Midlands is also the home of the famous fairytale hero from medieval times, Robin Hood. He and his Merry Men would steal from the rich and give to the poor, making them loved and hated at the same time. The region takes full advantage of this folk tale by offering tours of Nottingham Castle and Sherwood Forest as well as film memorabilia and even pageants.
