Nottinghamshire

Home of the legendary Robin Hood, Nottinghamshire is vibrant and diverse, offering residents an outstanding quality of life.

The city of Nottingham is one of the Government's eight core UK cities driving regional and national economic growth. Businesses here are thriving, employment growth is above national average and there remains a large pool of skilled, flexible people ready to support businesses in the region.

Over the past few years, the city has undergone major regeneration. Its Old Market Square has recently reopened after huge renewal, creating a welcoming signature space surrounded by shops and cafés. Ongoing development includes a massive £3.5 billion project which is changing Nottingham’s landscape and adding to its prosperity. 

Nottingham boasts a highly advanced transport system, The Big Wheel, which gained the UK Government's Centre of Excellence status for integrated transport, and includes a state-of-the-art tram network. The next few years will see the city's Victorian railway station become a world-class transport hub with even faster links to London and on into Europe.

Nottingham also offers impressive leisure facilities. One of the UK's top five shopping destinations, it boasts historic attractions such as Sherwood Forest, alongside sporting venues including Trent Bridge Cricket Ground, National Water Centre and some of the UK's finest golf courses.
