Despite being the second largest city in the Midlands (Birmingham is first) Nottingham is an easy city to navigate, especially without a car.
There’s a tram that goes into the city centre every ten minutes, and costs only £3.20 return, all day.
There are tons of city centre hotels to choose from. Here is a small choice, and if you have questions, give a shout.
Ibis Nottingham: This is at a tram stop, next to a Tesco express, and directly around the corner from the Waterstones.
Holiday Inn Express: City Centre, across the square from Waterstones and near some great restaurants.
The Waterstones is located just off Market Square, across the tram tracks from the Council House.
Nottingham boasts five gay bars: The New Foresters (lesbian), Propaganda (mixed), NG1 (mixed), AD2 (mixed) and The Lord Roberts (a pub, mixed). While there’s isn’t a gay area per say, there’s no question there’s a booming gay community here. Nottinghamshire Pride is usually the last weekend of July at The Forest.
