Nottingham is a historic city and is known for the legend of Robin Hood, its underground cave network and for once being at the centre of the world's lace market. In this section we'll give you an outline of how the city works.
The Layout of Nottingham
We think that the easiest way to find your way around a city is to choose a centre point and then divide the city into smaller districts. For Nottingham our centre point is Old Market Square. From here you can get to anywhere in the city centre within ten minutes.
We have divided Nottingham into four districts, and each district is divided into smaller chunks too. The areas are: the City Centre, extending from Broadmarsh up to Milton Street and the Victoria Centre with many of Nottingham's main attractions including the Castle and Caves; the Inner City, home to River Trent in the south and The Forest Recreation Ground in the north; the Nottingham Suburbs, the outskirts of the city with good motorway access and ideal for business travellers and finally Nottinghamshire, the county surrounding the city and includes Sherwood Forest and Southwell. For simplicity, we have included parts of other district councils within the Nottingham city region.
