Explore legendary history and diverse architecture

From the Georgian style of Oxford Street to the Gothic St. Barnabus Cathedral, there's plenty of heritage to admire around Nottingham. See breathtaking views of the city from the high perch of Nottingham Castle, or discover Nottingham's beating heart at the Old Market Square, the historic focal point of shopping, trade and community celebrations. You can even venture deep under the city streets to see the ‘City of Caves’, a set of preserved sandstone spaces that were once underground dwellings.

Back on the surface, you'll find a thriving urban centre, with all of your favourite brands and restaurants spread across the city's two main shopping malls, the Victoria Centre and the Broadmarsh Centre. There are also plenty of independent shops and boutiques, such as the art, speciality and craft stores along Derby Road.

Retire to a region that's rich with natural beauty

There's a whole lot more to the Nottinghamshire area than the busy city centre. It's a short trip to the Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve, home of both the legend of Robin Hood, and Major Oak, an 800-year-old tree that's the largest in the area.

There are five country parks and four nature reserves dotted around the county, and plenty of walking trails to follow, where you can spot wildlife, explore rural villages or simply admire the landscapes.

Move to an area that's full of sports and culture

Whether you're looking for an active retirement or an artistic experience, there's plenty to keep you interested around Nottinghamshire. There are also more than 20 tennis clubs and over 30 golf clubs in the area and acres of fishing hot-spots – such as those at Colwick Country Park or at the Welbeck Lakes – and many miles of dedicated cycling routes to explore the region on, from gentle village lanes to deep woodland trails.

And if you'd rather relax and soak up some art, you'll find a wide range of theatres, galleries and festivals throughout the county. There's inventive work at the Nottingham Contemporary, ballet, drama and opera at the 150-year-old Theatre Royal, or world-class musical acts at the Capital FM Arena.

You can also look forward to a huge number of festivals all through the year – such as the Robin Hood Beer and Cider Festival at Nottingham Castle, the Festival of Food and Drink at Clumber Park, or the classical performances of the Southwell Music Festival.
