Hello, nottingham

‘City of Caves’ and ‘Queen of the Midlands’ are two names fondly given to the city of Nottingham, which accurately reflects its hugely diverse nature, rich with cultural heritage and modern day entertainment. A city with a fascinating past and an exciting and buzzing present, Nottingham has everything to offer – from high culture, haute couture and widely acclaimed restaurants to the world famous legend of Robin Hood.

The City
Among a number of local legends from Nottinghamshire are the literary geniuses Lord Byron and D.H. Lawrence. International fashion designer Paul Smith set up his flagship store in the heart of the city where he was born, and Jesse Boot established his first chemist store ‘Boots’ in Nottingham, which soon became a household name across Britain. Robin Hood, the world’s most notorious outlaw, has also awarded international fame to the city, with many Robin Hood related sights to see in Nottingham. Nottinghamshire’s castles, caves and cathedrals are just the start of the county’s cultural heritage. Nottingham was once the world capital of lace production during the 18th and 19th century. The area famous for lace production – The Lace Market – is now a protected heritage site boasting stunning examples of industrial architecture from the 1700s.
