Nottingham Area Guide

Nestled in the heart of the East Midlands, Nottingham is famous around the world as the home of the legendary Prince of Thieves, Robin Hood and his band of merry men, who as legend has it, made their home in the magnificent royal Sherwood Forest.

We’re proud to claim this righteous rebel as one of our own, however, there are so many more reasons why Nottingham is one of the most popular places to live and visit in the UK.

Once the home of princes and kings, Nottingham boasts a colourful history, which is as evident today as ever. Many of the city’s famous landmark buildings have been retained and beautifully restored, helping to attract almost a quarter of a million visitors to the city every year

Situated on the third longest river in Britain, the River Trent, Nottingham has for centuries been a highly influential trading link from the industrial north and midlands to London, and is now the seventh largest economy in the UK.

Getting around in Nottingham

Nottingham's award-winning public transport system, including the largest publicly owned bus network in England, an excellent railway and tram system, and direct access to the M1, meaning getting in/out and around Nottingham is a cinch, helping attract even more businesses and prosperity to this Northern Power House and expanding the catchment area for commuters.


Nottingham is also a world-renowned seat of learning and home to many top universities, including the University of Nottingham whose illustrious alumni include Nobel prize winners, Olympic gold medallists, cutting edge scientists, international politicians, journalists, novelists and actors and notably, the critically acclaimed novelist DH Lawrence.

The universities attract students from all over the UK and overseas, and this makes a large contribution to the local economy.

Things to do in Nottingham

As an international trade and educational hub, Nottingham is a vibrant and culturally diverse city where you can enjoy a high-octane metropolitan lifestyle one minute, then just take a quick step outside of the city perimeter and you can relax and unwind in 450 hectares of ancient oak woodland in Sherwood Forest Park, get close to nature at the Attenborough Nature Reserve, or enjoy a family day out at Wollaton House and Deer Park.

For arts, culture and history lovers, the city is home to many museums and attractions, including the City of Caves, Nottingham Castle Museum, New Art Exchange, Nottingham Industrial Museum, Nottingham Natural History Museum, Green’s Windmill and Science Centre and the Natural Justice Museum, plus a host of large music and entertainment venues such as the Royal Concert Hall, Rock City, Nottingham Royal Concert Hall and Nottingham Arena.

There’s also a bit of football going on too...

Why we love Nottingham so much

The most important and special thing about Nottingham is its people. We may be a bit biased but we think you’ll find them to be the most friendly and welcoming people you’ll ever meet.

Fun fact: Did you know that Nottingham derived its name from a ruling Saxon chieftain named Snot, and the area became known as "Snotingham", meaning homestead of Snot's people.
