Price: Once you're parked up, it won't cost you a thing

Toilets: For customers of the local pub/café

Victoria Embankment is a grand, landscaped park alongside the mighty River Trent in Nottingham. It's the place to take all the family for a Sunday afternoon promenade, and then reward with a well-deserved ice-cream from the little kiosk near the bridge.

Either take a boat trip or use the river viewing platform to watch the boats, while soaking in the historic Trent Bridge. Yes, it's a real bridge, not just the very famous cricket grounds.

It's a super place to feed the ducks and geese or just sit and relax at one of the many local pubs en-route. You'll even find a great play area for the little ones at Memorial Gardens on the west side of the river.

Picnic spot:

Take a picnic to the Memorial Gardens and enjoy the peaceful surrounding on the banks of a great river in the middle of a city

The banks of the River Trent here are teeming with ducks and geese, so there are lots of opportunities to take some feed and get close to these wonderful water birds (as long as you remember not to feed them bread - see our healthy ducks page for six things you didn't know you could feed ducks)
