Visit the lively city of Nottingham
A vibrant, cosmopolitan city situated in the East Midlands only 120 miles from London, Nottingham is not to be missed. The city has some of the best museums and galleries in the country and regularly hosts a variety of arts programs and special events all through the year. It also has some fantastic libraries which are highly valued in the community. When you're done seeing the sights, Nottingham forest and other green areas as well as the many recreational facilities provide a great way to unwind.
You may be surprised to find that life is constantly buzzing in Nottingham no matter what the hour. This largely due to the large student population who attend Nottingham University. The constant injection of life that is injected into the city in the form of the students has resulted in a wide variety of shops, bars, pubs and restaurants. For evening entertainment, there are theaters, cinemas, galleries, and a number of sporting events which are hosted here in places such as the Nottingham arena.
Modern Nottingham may not remind you of life in the days of the legendary Robin Hood, but you can be sure that its has plenty of adventure to offer. Historical tours, legendary buildings and haunted old forests are just a few of the things you can expect to find here.
There are so many Nottingham hotels that you may find yourself struggling to decide on one. However, once you've checked in and relieved yourself of your luggage, you and get about the business of seeing all the sights. The town has a great number of historical sites and features such as the labyrinth of caves located under the city, the Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery and the brilliant Wollaton Hall and its 500 acre deer park. Greens Windmill, Newstead Abbey, Angel Row Gallery and the Brewhouse Yard Museum of Nottingham Life are just a few more great attractions. Nottingham shopping is perhaps best enjoyed in the Old Market Square - the largest surviving market square in Europe. At the top of the square you'll find the Council House with its unusually tall dome. The dome houses "Little John", the bell with the deepest tone in the entire country.
While Nottingham has gained a bit of a reputation for crime in recent years, measures have been taken to alleviate this problem and many have met with considerable success. Whatever the case, don't let anything deter you from visiting the legendary English city of Nottingham.
