Welcome to Nottingham

Nottingham is the largest city in the East Midlands and lies 120 miles north of London. The population of greater Nottingham is around 750,000 and with two successful universities bringing nearly 50,000 students, it’s young, vibrant and filled with great bars, shops and cultural attractions.

As sporting heritage goes, Nottingham has loads to offer too. Home to Nottingham Forest, Notts County, the world renowned Trent Bridge and the National Water Sports Centre there is loads to see and do for even the sportiest resident.
