About Southwell

About Southwell

Southwell is arguably the prettiest town in Nottinghamshire. The stunning Southwell Minster is a splendid cathedral with one of the finest Norman naves in Europe.

The festival site is only a stone’s throw from the Minster and the narrow high street and beautiful pubs and shops of Southwell which are well worth a visit while you are here.
