Trains to Worksop trundle through the charming Nottinghamshire countryside before coming to rest in this unique market town. The station dates back to 1849, and today it is an intermediate stop on the Sheffield-to-Lincoln line, with services to Adwick, Nottingham, Doncaster, Gainsborough and Shireoaks. The station is also the terminus of the Robin Hood line to Nottingham and Mansfield.
Known as the 'gateway to the Dukeries' - a reference to the surrounding ducal residencies of Rufford, Thoresby, Clumber and Welbeck - Worksop was built by the area's affluent families, and this is reflected at Bridge Street and Bridge Place, where the paving of the pedestrianized streets depicts heraldic crests. Markets have taking place in Worksop for nearly 1,000 years, and the open-air market every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday still remains a popular feature in the 21st century. Other highlights include the Harley Gallery, the Pilgrim Fathers' Story museum, and Mr Straw's House, a restored 1920s property.
