  • At Christmas there is a good size ice rink and a Christmas Market with a few roundabouts and things for younger children. Very lively with music, food outlets and drinking. Well worth a visit.

  • Is a really enjoyable place in Nottingham, to share with friends, family, couples or on your own. Almost every weekend is an event there or show to attend, most of them for free. In spring and summer is lovely when the musicians play their instruments during the sunset.
  • Fairly busy, well lit area, bang in the centre. Opposite Weatherspoons pub. Can get crazy busy at weekends or when there's events on.
  • Nottinghams central tram stop ideal for city centre.

  • Cool place
