Quality of Life

Welcome to a modern city of contrasts. From culture, shopping and dining out in our thriving city to historic buildings and beautiful countryside, you can make life what you want in our Nottingham.

An eclectic mix of culture, history, entertainment, world-class sporting events, leisure and retail, Nottingham can offer you the chance to maximise your spare time.

Our restaurant and bar scene is renowned across the UK – with great venues from Jamie’s Italian to the award-winning World Service and Michelin-starred Sat Bains, and the UK’s oldest tavern. Soak in some culture from the city’s many art galleries, buzzing theatres or museums, or explore the network of caves under your feet.

We’re ranked 5th in the UK for the quality of our retail, home to top names in fashion such as Paul Smith, Hugo Boss, Joules, Ted Baker, L’Occitane, Jo Malone, Vivienne Westwood and Jack Wills.

For those who want to escape the city, historic villages, mansions and stunning countryside are just a short journey away – access the legendary Sherwood Forest or the breathtaking Peak District.

And if sport is your thing, you won’t be short of choice. Nottingham is home to two football clubs, a National Water Sports Centre, many country parks and sports centres and the world-famous Trent Bridge cricket ground, which hosts the Ashes and this year will see the Indian Test Match played. 35 million visit us annually to enjoy what we have to offer.

Property in the city ranges from Edwardian apartments, to gothic Victorian mansions in the Park Estate, modernist riverside apartments overlooking the River Trent, traditional detached family homes in areas such as West Bridgford, Mapperley and Beeston and loft conversions in the city’s historic Lace Market.

You can afford to enjoy it all – with the lower cost of living in Nottingham, salaries can remain competitive while workers enjoy more disposable income.

The Council’s decision to sell Confetti their city centre site, a site we previously rented for 20 years, is an example of the council’s forward thinking attitude and trust in a private sector operation to continue delivering training and jobs for people in the city
