Famous for the legend of Robin Hood and his merry men, Nottingham is an exciting modern day city steeped in history. Built on soft sandstone, the network of underground caves is impressive which includes some leading up to the iconic Nottingham Castle.

A busy shopping destination which mixes the expansive and ancient Old Market Square with two large, modern indoor shopping centres. Nottingham features many centres of sport excellence including Trent Bridge Cricket Ground in the south and the National Ice Arena in the city centre. Once the centre of the world's lace making industry, this district has become a hub for creative businesses, independent shops and trendy bars.
