Nottingham is one of the biggest cities in the UK - with a long and interesting history to go with it. Back in the day it was one of the Royal cities & was often seen as a vital city during times of civil war, largely due to its central geographical location.

Some of the main tourist sites include the Castle (which had to be rebuilt following riots in 1832 in which it was extensively damaged by fire.) & a number of city museums which cover topics such as the life & times of the legendary Robin Hood (Tales of Robin Hood) and there is also an extensive display at the castle museum about World War One flying ace Albert Ball - who was born in Nottingham on 14th August 1896. During the war he joined the Sherwood Foresters & was later seconded into the newly created Royal Flying Corps. At the time of his death, he was the leading Allied ace with 44 victories

I have lived in the city as a student and can say there are a great many things to see and do. These include visiting the many bars, clubs & even a pub which claims to be the oldest in England - 'Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem' (1189 AD). There is a vibrant music scene - to check out the latest up & coming talent or to cram in to see the biggest global names on tour then the place to be is 'Rock City'...tickets can be bought at the door or via the website. http://www.visitnottingham.com/ http://www.triptojerusalem.com/ http://www.rock-city.co.uk/ http://www.robinhood.uk.com/

My home town. If your out for the night here dont miss a thing, if there are people packing the place out have a gander. My favourite watering hole is "Scream" up by the side of the Royal Theater, cheap ale and good music. Move onto any bar on the way, try the Hockley area for some class then move back up towards scream for a night in the "Stealth" club; 5 rooms, different music in each and most heavy nights a live band. Food is scarce at 3am but Kizmet Kebabs is always a good shout

The Nottingham castle was sadly destroyed by the roundheads and the site was used by Charles II as a base for a manor house. The basement of this is home to a great little pub. The river Trent is also scenic and what better place to be than next to Trent Bridge and the home ground of Nottingham Forest.
