Pubs/Cafes

After your exercise head into Nottingham to visit the unique Canalhouse pub in the city centre. Itis famous for having a canal that extends into the grade II listed building, complete with resident narrow boats.There's also a large covered beer garden situated by the canal side which enables people to sit outside no matter the weather. You can find it at 48-52 Canal Street, NG1 7EH
Also of interest is the Fellows, Morton & Clayton housed in the former canal museum. The 19th century pub has nice outdoor seating next to the canal. It's also on Canal Street near to the Canalhouse pub

Dog Walking

The park is a great place for a dog walk but its best to keep them on a lead near the deer.
