Life in Nottingham

Nottingham boasts a bustling city centre, yet it is surrounded by traditional English countryside. The city has a large student population due to its two universities, but it remains true to its history and heritage.


As the evening takes over, you will be able to experience the city’s buzzing nightlife and international cuisine. Heading further into the county, you can delve into the medieval legend of Robin Hood or take part in exhilarating outdoor pursuits. Alternatively, you can travel to the western neighbourhood of Hockley, which is filled with alternative fashion, art‐house cinema and galleries.


Nottingham was named a 'City of Literature' by UNESCO in late 2015. The title reflects Nottingham’s literary heritage, with Lord Byron, D. H. Lawrence and Alan Sillitoe having links to the city.


In October 2015, Nottingham was dubbed the ‘Home of English Sport’, with the National Ice Centre, Holme Pierrepont National Watersports Centre, and Trent Bridge international cricket ground all based in or around the city.


There is also a strong and vibrant LGBT culture in the city, with the annual Nottinghamshire Pride Festival attracting visitors from all over the country to celebrate the county’s diversity.


The outdoors is a huge part of Nottingham, and there is nothing better than exploring on foot, or even on horseback, and there are also plenty of festivals and events throughout the year. 


There are around 300 schools in the county, from nursery and infants through to primary, secondary and college.
