Boasting great local amenities, plentiful attractions and a dynamic and vibrant culture, Nottingham is one of the UK’s top destinations. Situated just off the M1, with Sheffield, Derby and Leicester all within easy reach, living here you’d be perfectly positioned for commuting throughout the Midlands, and enjoying all the delights of the region. Closer to home, there’s also a plethora of attractions and facilities that make Nottingham a fantastic place to live, whether you’re looking for a first home, a larger family home, or downsizing.

Attractions galore

Home to legendary outlaw Robin Hood, Nottingham also hosts many local attractions including the fascinating City of Caves below the city centre, the magnificent Wollaton Hall and its 500 acres of parkland, the National Justice Museum and Nottingham Industrial Museum. You’ll have no trouble staying busy on days off and holidays! The city also boasts a vast array of leisure and entertainment venues, including numerous bars and eateries, local sporting venues, theatres and galleries.

Shop ‘til you drop

Shopping enthusiasts will not be disappointed by what Nottingham has to offer. In the city centre, the Victoria Centre mall is home to 120 popular brands and eateries; Flying Horse Walk is a Georgian arcade with a range of independent shops and upscale boutiques, and there are numerous high street stores, local businesses, bars, restaurants and cafes lining the attractive streets. For everyday essentials, you’ll also find a number of supermarkets located within popular residential areas.

Education for all

Families with children will be pleased to know that the area is well-served educationally, with a wide selection of local primary schools and secondary schools. Among the best performing are Edna G Olds Academy for primary age children, Djanogly City Academy and Bluecoat Wollaton Academy for secondary age children, and the sought-after Nottingham University. There is also a selection of nurseries, found throughout the city.

Great central location

One of the main draws of Nottingham is how well connected it is. Getting around the city couldn’t be easier – the Nottingham Express Transit is a 20-mile long tram system carrying passengers around the centre and out into surrounding areas. The main train station links you to local towns and cities including Leicester, Sheffield and Peterborough. Meanwhile for road travel, Nottingham has easy access to the M1 motorway, the A52 and A60.
