Stay in our Holiday Inn® Nottingham hotels and in no time you'll be wandering through legendary Sherwood Forest or sipping traditional ale in the pubs around Market Square.
Our hotels in Nottingham put you near the center of the city, close to the medieval Nottingham Castle. Forever tied to the legends of Robin Hood, it stands sentry over downtown Nottingham. The museum inside outlines the castle's history since its 1067 completion. The City of Caves nearby has been in use by locals for more than a thousand years. Its subterranean labyrinth of sandstone caves is now open for tours. Nottingham was an important lace-making center during the Industrial Revolution, and among the converted brick warehouses in the historic Lace Market district is the Galleries of Justice. Close to our Nottingham hotels, its museum of crime and punishment exhibits courtrooms and jails from the 14th and 15th centuries.
It's a short hop from our hotels in Nottingham to the city's buzzing nightlife hubs. Join the crowds in Bridlesmith Gate, dotted with fashionable bars, or Hockley, where hipsters and students enjoy global cuisine before partying the night away. Some of the city's most venerable pubs, such as the ancient Bell Inn, lie in Market Square, while fashionistas head for the Lace Market's renovated warehouses, now home to trendy shops and bars.
Book into our Holiday Inn Nottingham hotels and immerse yourself in the legend of Robin Hood. Take a short drive from our Nottingham hotels to Sherwood Forest, the picturesque remnant of a former royal hunting forest. Down a footpath just north of Edwinstowe is the massive Major Oak-the ancient hideout, legend has it, of Robin Hood and his merry men. Or visit in August during Nottingham's Robin Hood Festival, when the famous outlaw is celebrated with medieval vigor.
