Two of the biggest cities in the area are Nottingham and Derby. Famous for being home to the legendary Prince of Thieves, Robin Hood, Nottingham mixes the old and new with ancient buildings and some fantastic ultra modern shopping centres.
Its historical pubs also play their part in attracting ale drinkers looking for the perfect pint from all over the British Isles. Just 14 miles west of Nottingham lies the city of Derby. Head to Derby’s attractive Cathedral Quarter for a mix of middle road restaurants and designer shops, or if you’re looking for something a bit darker visit Derby Gaol. Walk around in the dark dank dungeon of the city’s Gaol dating back to 1756… just make sure they let you out in time for when the casinos open.
Being one of the biggest casino’s we’ve come across outside of London, the independent and refreshingly different, Dusk Till Dawn is well worth a look. With more of an emphasis on poker than other casinos, it’s a different experience than the cut-out Gala and Coral casinos.
Add in to the mix the huge big money monthly poker tournament schedule, capacity for 450 poker players in one sitting, as well as a blackjack tournament,s and you’ve got your self one of the best independant casinos in the UK.
As you would expect, Dusk Till Dawn offers a range of food and various bars at not unreasonable prices. They even have a merchandise shop if you fancy a new set of casino chips or a branded hoodie!
