  • Great for kids at The Pirates Park and cafe available but very expensive considering the area is not surrounded by wealthy earners. Best bring your own picnic and snacks.
  • Don't know much about this, besides the sign is spelling Nottingham this week... The university students usually rearrange them after a good weekend drink.
  • Really good park, Goosfair place every year, tram stop and bus stop near by. Really good place to keep urself fit.
  • The largest public park very close to the city centre. Clean, with lots of jogging tracks. Lots of sports facilities.
  • Its a massive park with a huge free car park (park and ride) modern clean public toilets and a cafe too.

Where to stay in Nottingham

Staying in Nottingham's historical town center not only keeps you close to the area's finest shopping and dining, but also near an increasingly popular bohemian quarter. The town center is packed with top-quality boutique and spa hotels, as well as luxurious self-catering apartments.
