A major sporting city, Nottingham was crowned the ‘Home of English Sport’ during 2015. You’ll find the National Ice Centre, the Holme Pierrepont National Watersports Centre, and Trent Bridge international cricket grounds all based within and around the city, as well as two professional football teams: Notts County, the world’s oldest professional league club, and Nottingham Forest, two-time winners of the UEFA European Cup. Nottingham was even named as the UK’s first City of Football. There are also professional rugby, ice hockey, and cricket teams, as well as the Aegon Nottingham Open international tennis tournament which is hosted in the city.

Known for its part in the legend of Robin Hood, Nottingham is home to the hilltop Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery, which has been reconstructed several times over since the mediaeval era. The city also has its own Lace Market area, which was once the centre of the world’s lace industry, where the Galleries of Justice Museum sits, showing crime-related exhibits for the public to enjoy. Locals are also free to explore the Wollaton Hall, an ornate Elizabethan mansion with historical collections showcased in their own Bird Room, Fish Room, and the Long Gallery, alongside stunning natural spaces and a deer park.

Nottingham is also home to two well-respected universities: the University of Nottingham, and Nottingham Trent University, with over 70,000 students combined.
