“Some of you may recognise this as Batman’s house, and it is commensurately impressive with beautiful architecture and surrounded by Wollaton Deer Park. The deer roam free here so you can walk right up to them with no fence in between. Please keep in mind they are wild animals and it isn’t a petting zoo, but they are truest amazing to spend time with. There is at least one festival here every year, ‘Splendour’ that’s family friendly and is a good day of music.”
