Featured Nottingham Hotels

Known as the home of legendary outlaw Robin Hood, Nottingham abounds with history and culture. While the city’s folklore, galleries and museums keep culture aficionados entertained, its mix of independent shops and trendy boutiques attracts many shopping pilgrims.

 

Nottingham: city layout

Old Market Square is right in the middle of Nottingham’s compact city centre. Chain stores line the square, and the eastern end is dominated by Nottingham Council House. If you continue past this stately building, you’ll come to the narrow streets of Hockley and the red-brick buildings of The Lace Market.

 

In order to get to the River Trent, you’ll need to head south from the central square. Nottingham Train Station is right across the river, while Nottingham Castle lies to the west of intu Broadmarsh shopping centre.

 

Top attractions in Nottingham

Dating back to Norman times, Nottingham Castle commands a prominent position on top of the eponymous Castle Rock cliff. Nowadays, it is used primarily as a museum and houses historical exhibitions as well as a large collection of Nottingham’s decorative and fine art pieces.

 

The castle is built on top of a network of manmade sandstone caves from the Middle Ages. Tour guides regularly lead visitors through this subterranean world and entertain them with intriguing tales of the city’s history.

 

The concierge recommends…

  • A quick pint of real ale in Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, one of England’s oldest pubs.
  • Dining in one of The Lace Market’s fancy bistros. Many of the area’s former Victorian lace factories have been converted into some of the city’s trendiest eateries.
  • Taking a tour underneath intu Broadmarsh shopping centre through the manmade City of Caves.
  • Enjoying the landscaped grounds and Elizabethan rooms of Wollaton Hall.



Hotels in Nottingham

As Nottingham is a popular destination for city breaks, there is ample choice of hotels in its city centre. Families can be close to the sights, while young couples after a taste of the buzzy nightlife can opt to be nearer to the city’s trendy bars and swanky restaurants.

 

A quieter area slightly away from the city centre, Castle Boulevard is popular with families. Only a short walk from the castle, the street is conveniently located right around the corner from Castle Marina Retail Park . Many families choose to stay close to Alton Towers theme park, a 45-minute drive out of the city if you bed down at a hotel off the M1 motorway.

 

The northern end of the city centre is popular with couples and business travellers. The Theatre Royal Concert Hall offers music shows, dramas and comedies in its packed cultural calendar, while Alea Casino’s poker rooms and VIP lounge are fun places to end a night on the tiles. For those visiting on business, hotels in northern Nottingham offer great public transport links and are within close proximity of many offices and company HQs.



Eating Out in Nottingham

Food in Nottingham ranges from quintessential pub grub to the exotic flavours of far-off cuisines. Once the hub of the 19th-century European lace industry, many of the former Victorian factories of The Lace Market have been converted into high-end restaurants serving everything from authentic British dishes to refined tapas specialities.

 

Vintage tea shops and unique bistros line the narrow streets of Hockley. Nottingham’s boho area is popular with students, with a throng of independent eateries offering great value for money.

 

Old Market Square hosts many food fairs and seasonal farmers’ markets throughout the year. They’re a great way to sample local produce and grab a quick bite to eat in between hitting the shops.

 

If you’re out and about in Sherwood Forest, there are even more opportunities to try locally sourced food. The forest itself features a gourmet restaurant, while nearby villages have taverns serving locally brewed real ales.

The chef recommends...

  • Stilton cheese: Nottinghamshire is one of the few places in the UK that can claim Protected Geographical Indication of this famous blue-veined cheese.
  • Gooseberry pork pies: Originally from Mansfield, this twist on the classic Melton Mowbray pork pie is now popular across the whole of Nottinghamshire.
  • Nottingham batter pudding: Bramley cooking apples were first grown in Nottinghamshire and are now often seen baked whole and covered in batter to create this traditional dessert.



Shopping in Nottingham

Nottingham city centre is full of the usual high-street clothes shops and national chains. But one thing that helps raise the city’s status as a go-to shopping destination is its mix of both independent retailers and big-name designer labels.

 

Located in the refined Bridlesmith Gate area, Paul Smith’s flagship store is set back from the street in a handsome building, nestled among other chic names such as Cath Kidston and Ted Baker. There are also more high-end brands just off Old Market Square in The Exchange.

 

If you’re more into vintage clothing and quirky knick-knacks, Hockley’s laid-back vibe is reflected in its eclectic selection of used clothes shops and retro-themed retailers.

 

Canning Circus and the bustling Derby Road are also two hotspots for local vintage boutiques. The latter leads towards the bulk of Nottingham’s student housing, making it the perfect place to go bargain-hunting.

Nottingham’s best vintage shops

  • The Worm that Turned: This Derby Road shop has a selection of retro gardening tools and equipment that’s as quirky as its name.
  • Vintage to a Tea: The clothing rails in this used clothes shop feature fashions from the ‘30s to the ‘70s.
  • Wild Clothing: Nottingham’s longest-serving vintage clothes shop has been building its reputation since 1983.



Culture & Nightlife in Nottingham

Simple to navigate, Nottingham’s dense city centre makes it easy to hop between bars, theatres and restaurants on a night out. The city also has a thriving alternative music scene, largely driven by its student population. City-centre pubs welcome local singers, while the city’s theatres host themed music shows as part of their packed calendars of dramas and comedies.

 

Nottingham Castle Museum houses various exhibitions, including some on the city’s archaeology. It also has an impressive collection of art, ranging from 15th-century alabaster carvings to Nottingham lace costumes. At the bottom of Castle Rock, you’ll find the Museum of Nottingham Life and and the curious Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem tavern.

 

Nottingham Contemporary is at the cutting edge of the city’s art scene. In honour of its site at the entrance to The Lace Market, an impressive embossed lace design features on the building’s panels. Once inside, you’ll find an ever-changing line-up of exhibitions – the gallery has previously showcased the likes of David Hockney and Diane Arbus.

Nottingham’s best live music venues

  • Rock City is exactly what it says on the tin. Most of its nightly gigs are followed by alternative club nights.
  • A former Victorian music hall, Malt Cross is now a charity-run café-bar that hosts local musicians.
  • One for the indie kids, The Bodega Social Club’s tiny upstairs room is usually the first Nottingham venue for many up-and-coming bands.



Visiting Nottingham with a Family

Whether you’re an outdoorsy family or want to take the kids on an educational trip, there are lots of child-friendly options in and around Nottingham. With so many restaurants offering child-size portions – regardless of cuisine – fussy eaters won’t get much chance to complain.

 

Nottingham's stories of crime and punishment are entertainingly documented at the Galleries of Justice. Choose to wander round the exhibitions on your own or listen to one of the many character actors – including the Sheriff of Nottingham – who add colour to the city’s gruesome tales as they lead you around this former courthouse.

 

After you’ve admired the Robin Hood statue taking aim with his bow and arrow outside Nottingham Castle, you can head down the hill to the caves in the cliff below. Guided tours take you down into these medieval cellars, which have played an important part in Nottingham’s history.

Best family days out in Nottingham

  • The story of Robin Hood thrills kids of all ages – they’ll love exploring his stomping ground of Sherwood Forest.
  • From falconry and archery to quad biking and paintballing, the kids won’t be bored at The Adrenalin Jungle.
  • Wollaton Hall is the perfect place to pitch up with a picnic and go deer watching.

I just had to write something on your reviews re Shriya. She is an excellent example of a model employee, whether she is behind the bar or in the restaurant, I have never seen anything other than a [More] person with a permanent smile on her face and an attitude that portrays nothing is ever to much trouble regardless how busy she is. Alway helpful!, and can manage the bar on her own even when it's extremely busy, never flustered or stressed out. Shriya is person that any employer would wish to have on their staff. [Less]

Spotless hotel with very friendly staff.
By Catherine
Stayed in Holiday Inn, Leicester in early October. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the hotel and leisure centre were spotless.. The only problem was the air conditioning didn't work so [More] we had to open the window which let in the noise of the traffic outside. It was too late to change when we realised this, so it really impacted on our sleep quality. If we were in a room at the back of the hotel where the noise wouldn't be as intrusive I would rate this hotel very highly. [Less]
Comfortable stop over, great breakfast

Hotel was nice and quiet so had a great night's sleep after a long drive. Breakfast was also very good and amongst the best I've had in a while. The only issue I had was that the bar was closed [More] when we got there so couldn't enjoy a drink before going to bed. [Less]
