Things To Do In Nottingham

Are you thinking about carrying on your studies at The University Of Nottingham or Nottingham Trent Uni?

Other than our impressive Graystacks accommodation being located in the heart of the City, there is also so much for you to do and see…

– City Of Caves

A visitor (or resident) attraction which consists of a network of caves carved out of sandstone.

These caves were inhabited from at least the 17th century until 1845.

– Sky Mirror

Commissioned by the Nottingham Playhouse from Artist Anish Kapoor. Sky Mirror is a public six-metre wide concave dish sculpture that reflects the ever-changing sky and landscape.

– The Arboretum

The Arboretum was the first designated public park in Nottingham opening in 1854.

It’s the closest park to the city centre and is a Green flag winning park with a grade II listing.
– Highfields Park

Highfields Park is located in the west of Nottingham and boasts 121 acres of land.

There are historical ties between the park and the campus itself so the park is referred to as ‘University park.’ The park has a boating lake complete with boats to hire, a waterfall and stepping stones.

Nottingham council took ownership of the park after Sir Jesse Boot (the founder of Boots chemists) released the deeds over to them once he had passed away.

– Museum Of Nottingham Life

The Museum Of Nottingham Life is located within five 17th century cottages.

See for yourself what houses and shops would have looked like in the early 1900’s.

– Old Market Square

The Old Market Square is a pedestrianised square in Nottingham City centre.

In its early days before Nottingham was formed, the area was the centre point between the Norman town of Nottingham, situated around the Castle rock, and the old Anglo-Saxon town which was based around the current lace market at St Mary’s church also called Snothryngham, Snottinghaham or Snottingham.

The two towns were once divided by a wall which is now represented by the stainless steel drainage channel that runs down the middle of Old Market square.
