Nottingham Castle - Drone Nottingham, United Kingdom Situated on a high rock, Nottingham Castle commands spectacular views over the city and once rivalled the great castles of Windsor and the Tower of London.Its history is chequered with sieges, murders and intrigue.

The grounds boast magnificent views of the city and beyond.
