My next trip arrived quite quickly! In a way, I am glad as I need it!! Today marks the first day in Nottingham. The drive is not too bad this time, only 2 hours and 30 minutes. Plus, I actually got to see Michael McIntyre!

Hi all! Welcome to my second trip of the year! This time I have gone to Nottingham! I am staying at Hilton Nottingham, which so far is an awesome hotel…despite a mix-up! But more on that later! The drive-up was not too bad, certainly not as bad as Plymouth! It was a 2-hour and 30-minute drive, I only needed to stop once! Although finding Hilton Nottingham is another story completely!

After my 30-minute stop at one of the service stations I arrived in Nottingham, and I’ll be honest, it was confusing to say the least! It appears they are doing some work to the buildings here, but it is also causing confusion! I followed the sign to Hilton Nottingham, and it took me around the block….finally, I found the car park I needed to park in and walked over to the Hilton.

I arrived at the hotel and unfortunately there was a bit of a mess-up, I choose my room the other day when I had the option to check in I choose 609 which is on the top floor, it was also an upgrade, but I thought I would treat myself. However, due to some system error, the room was given to someone else, it was a King Deluxe Room. I said I would just go back to my original room, and I’ll pay less, however Hilton were so good that they said due to the error they would upgrade me! I ended up being in a Family Deluxe Room, which huge! Furthermore, I was pleasantly impressed! Here is a room tour:

So, next up was for me to get some dinner, there is a load of fast food restaurants in Nottingham, I decided to go to Taco Bell as I have not been there for a long while! It was excellent!

After dinner, I headed back to the hotel and rested for a little while before I headed over to Motorpoint Arena. It wasn’t a long walk, and I basically followed everyone else! It was a huge arena and very busy, but that is expected! The seats were not the best, but I still really enjoyed the show, I haven’t to laughed as much as that in a long while!! Here are a few pictures from the night.

After the show, I headed back to the hotel and relaxed. I had an awesome evening and I really enjoyed the show. I am so glad I got the opportunity to go and see Michael McIntyre. It was awesome! Tomorrow I am heading to the City of Caves in Nottingham which my friend recommanded, then heading to the on site gym in the afternoon. Good night!
