Nottingham is world famous for its association with the legendary Robin Hood and the nearby Sherwood Forest, but there's plenty more to see and do. Packed full of opportunities for shopping, culture and nights out, it makes a great city break destination and there is a wide range of hotels in Nottingham to choose from.
Wherever you stay in the city, it's easy to reach all the main attractions. The centre is compact and pedestrianised and is centred round the landmark Old Market Square. The reliable tram system is also great for getting around. Or you might prefer to stay just outside the centre, closer to the historic attractions of Nottingham Castle, Lord Byron's Newstead Abbey or the beautiful Woolaton Hall, which has its own deer park. For something a little different, why not explore the quality arts and crafts of the Harley Gallery or the authentic living history experience of The Workhouse?
Depending on what time of year you visit, you could catch a cricket match at Trent Bridge, watch Nottingham Forest play football, enjoy the renowned Festival of Words, take in a performance at the Theatre Royal or even watch the ice hockey at Torvill and Dean's National Ice Centre. Bear in mind that around the time of any special events Nottingham hotels can get booked up quickly so make sure to plan ahead.
Just strolling round the city you will see many examples of grand historic architecture, which was funded by the city's lace-making and coal industries of the past. Some of these house fascinating museums and exhibitions, such as the insights into the history of crime at the Galleries of Justice, or the interactive experiences at Green's Windmill and Science Centre.
There are Nottingham hotels catering for all budgets and tastes, from cosy B&Bs to contemporary boutique hotels and even apartments for short-term rental. You will also find all of the major brands, from Premier Travel Inn and Travelodge through to Britannia, Jurys, Holiday Inn, Mercure, Best Western, Ramada and Hilton.
