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. If you are travelling on a shoestring or just quickly passing through, consider one of Nottingham's low-budget hostels or inns. For a taste of country living, book your stay a working-farm cottage or a family-run countryside B&B.

  • A nice morning out with plenty of museum type events, cars model railways etc
  • Explore the inner geek with vintage trains and busses. Great few hours for all ages.
  • A great day out for all ages, lots to see and do with the miniature railway to sit on and enjoy, from old buses, and even a ride on an old steam train to Loughborough. A small cafe and shop on site selling light refreshments to main meals at cheap prices. A day out for anybody!
  • Lovely day out. The Country Park next door is great for the kids and visiting the Heritage Centre topped off a super day out. The model railway is delightful (and free) and the miniature railway is excellent value for money (50p for adult and 30p for child, under 3s free). We had two goes, one on each track with a different engine. Seeing the running steam engine and Class 47 was a real bonus.
  • Kids love it, nice to see the way things were back in the day
