One of the most exciting cities to live in not only within the Midlands but anywhere in the UK, buying a new home in Nottingham is often an easy decision to make.

Things to see and do in Nottingham
The city centre and its surrounding area are packed with interesting cultural and historical landmarks, not least Nottingham Castle where you can explore the on-site art gallery and museum. Wander down to the Old Market Square to soak up the city’s ambience, stopping at Nottingham Natural History Museum on your way. Head to the Lakeside Arts centre to catch a performance, or go for a skate at the National Ice Centre, where you can also watch hockey games.
The National Justice Museum is well worth a visit, along with Wollaton Hall, the City of Caves and the spooky Haunted Museum. Don’t miss Rushcliffe Country Park, Bestwood Country Park or Attenborough Nature Reserve if you’re looking for some natural spaces to enjoy, or nods to the region’s legendary Robin Hood at the Experience museum and Sherwood Forest.
This area is full of good schools, including top performing secondary Bluecoat Wollaton Academy. It’s rated as outstanding by Ofsted, along with Fernwood School in the west of the city, while Nottingham Free School and Djanogly City Academy are also strong choices.
If you have younger children, Welbeck Primary and Edna G Olds Academy are both outstanding schools according to Ofsted. The same goes for Huntingdon Academy close to the city centre and South Wilford CofE, which is on the River Trent’s southern bank.
Transport links in Nottingham
Nottingham’s award-winning transport network incorporates bus, train and tram services, which you can pay for using a cashless Robin Hood card for added convenience. There are also plenty of cycling routes in and around town, along with bike hire options if you need them.
East Midlands Airport is 15 miles south of the city centre, while Nottingham also benefits from its close proximity to the M1 motorway. This gives you direct access to a range of major places, including London, Leicester, Leeds and Sheffield.
The Nottingham property market
House prices in Nottingham are little below the national average, but the city has been forecast for some of the country’s best growth prospects in recent years. There’s plenty of choice in the local area, whether you want a city centre apartment or a large 4 or 5 bedroom family home surrounded by open countryside in the Bingham area just east of town.
