‘The Trip’ is an Inn  in Nottingham, England located on the side of its castle. The In n lays in the sandstone below the castle, the sign outside indicates the presence of the inn as of 1189 at the very least. It was the year that Richard the Lionheart began the third crusade. Legend would have us believe that the knights would meet at the Inn before journeying to Jerusalem.

In ‘The Trip’ you can see the Haunted Galleon, a model of a ship that has been cursed. If anyone tries to clean the ship it brings death to that person. So it’s currently encased in glss and covered in dust to avoid anyone befalling the curse.

The most famous landlord of the Inn was George Henry Ward, nicknamed ‘Yorky’, he was the licensee from 1894 until his death in 1914. It’s now said his ghost haunted the cellar where he likes to play tricks on the staff and move things around.

This is one choice for the writer as a local pub, good food and creepy tales to go with it? If you are in Nottingham it’s a good place to go.
