Living in Nottingham

City of Literature

Nottingham is one of five UNESCO Cities of Literature in the UK. Fuelled by history and legends like Robin Hood and driven by its diverse and young population, the city has an impressive array of bookshops, literary organisations and events and a strong focus on poetry, making it a vibrant and exciting place to live.

But if literature isn’t your thing, there’s still lots for you to enjoy. The city’s culture transcends literature with great galleries, the independent Broadway Cinema, food, street art, like Anish Kapoor’s Sky Mirror, and a thriving live music scene. With so much on offer, there will be plenty to explore and get stuck into from your new home in Nottingham.

Award-winning public transport

An award-winning public transport network means that you’ll stay connected wherever you are in the city. With a tram network stretching from the north to the south of the city that connects with railway stations and bus stations, it’s quick to get into the city centre, even from the outlying suburbs, villages and towns such as Hucknall.

The city's station has direct connections to major cities like Sheffield, Birmingham and London. Due to the city’s location in the centre of the country, it’s ideally placed for journeys all across the UK. So, wherever your new home is in the city, you’ll be able to commute easily for work and enjoy all that the region has to offer.

Outstanding schools and universities

There are numerous primary and secondary schools that have been ranked as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. This is the highest recognition that an educational provider can receive and means that they provide the highest quality care and education for their children.

There are also two universities in the city, Nottingham University and Nottingham Trent University, that rank among the best in the UK. So, if you’re moving with a young family or are developing your own education, a new home will unlock a wealth of high-quality learning opportunities.
