City of history A way with words Literary legends such as DH Lawrence, Lord Byron and Alan Sillitoe all grew up and worked around Nottingham. The city and its people inspiring many of their most famous works.

Nottingham began life as a Roman settlement that has grown and changed dramatically over the centuries. Its past is etched on the streets and in architecture, waiting to be found as long as you know where to look.

12

Step back in time The Castle (main picture) sitting atop Castle Rock has played a major role in much of the city’s history. Famed as the stronghold of Robin Hood’s arch nemesis the Sheriff of Nottingham, its medieval walls and dungeons are testament to a dark past. It was also here that Charles I raised his Royal Standard marking the start of the English Civil War. His subsequent defeat led to Republican forces destroying much of the original castle to prevent it from being used as a seat of Royal power again. In the shadow of the castle is the Museum of Nottingham Life at Brewhouse Yard (pictured left) which traces what it was like to live in the city over the last 300 years.

Bringing the past to life Head over to the Lace Market area of the city to discover many of the old lace mills that sprung up during the industrial revolution and made the city’s fortunes. The factories have since moved on but it’s here you can find the Galleries of Justice Museum dedicated to crime and punishment through the ages. Nottingham sits upon sandstone bedrock and there are miles of caves running below the city’s streets. The City of Caves in Broadmarsh gives you a glimpse of this subterranean world where people once lived and worked. It’s easy to miss a lot of sights and places while exploring the city by yourself, but by going on one of the many walking tours of Nottingham you’ll be introduced to many hidden and forgotten stories from the past. Ask at the Nottingham tourism centre to find out more.

Food for thought

Inspiration for

everyone Nottingham is a place to be entertained and inspired by leading international art galleries, world class theatre, great live music and the best standup comedians. 20

Sky’s the limit Anish Kapoor’s Sky Mirror sculpture (pictured above) beside the Nottingham Playhouse was unveiled in 2001. A larger version of the Sky Mirror has also been exhibited around the world, including at New York’s famous Rockefeller Plaza.

Two of the UK’s newest art galleries can be found in the city. Nottingham Contemporary (main picture) exhibits work by major British and international artists all year round. Free to visit, the striking modern building on the edge of the Lace Market has spacious galleries, a cool café and regular events, even for kids. The city’s other new gallery is the New Art Exchange. A short tram ride from the Contemporary it specialises in the work of leading and up-and-coming ethnic artists as well as supporting the local community. More traditional forms of art can be found at Nottingham Castle, which has a permanent collection of ceramics and classic paintings as well as hosting regular exhibitions.

Big performances The city has many theatres ranging from small independents like the Lace Market Theatre and Nottingham Arts Theatre to the bigger Theatre Royal (pictured) and Nottingham Playhouse. The Playhouse stages many new and original plays while the Theatre Royal also hosts a lot of major touring productions encompassing everything from Shakespeare to pantomime. The Royal Centre is one of the city’s main music venues and is a regular stop for leading artists. It’s also a great venue for ballet and classical music. If you fancy something a bit bigger in scale the Trent FM Arena has a capacity of over 10,000 people and has seen many major international tours pass through its doors. If you prefer a laugh then try out one of Nottingham’s many comedy clubs. Just the Tonic at the Cornerhouse is the city’s longest running club and regularly attracts big name comedians. 21 Images courtesy of www.lineandlight.co.uk 2010

Getting around Nottingham: a guide to the city’s zones Nottingham city centre has been divided into five zones. Here is a brief guide to the key attractions and places of interest you’ll find in each. Royal zone At the heart of this zone is the Royal Centre, comprising the splendid Theatre Royal which dates back to 1865, alongside the more modern Royal Concert Hall. Nearby are The Cornerhouse and Trinity Square developments offering a variety of leisure venues including a multi-screen cinema, bars and restaurants. There is a wide range of shopping, drinking and dining throughout the area, which also plays host to two of Nottingham’s major centres of learning, Nottingham Trent University and Nottingham High School.

Victoria zone Shopping dominates this zone which was once home to the city’s Great Central and Great Northern railway lines. The Clock Tower of the former Victoria Railway Station was preserved and now marks one of the entrances to the modern day Victoria Centre. Next to the shopping centre is the original Victoria Hotel - now the Hilton Nottingham which accompanied the former station.

Castle zone Within the impressive walls that once surrounded the original medieval Nottingham Castle is a magnificent 17th century ducal mansion with wonderful views over the Castle zone and the entire city centre. The iconic statue of Robin Hood stands outside the castle walls just downhill from the Castle’s 13th century gatehouse. There is also much to see and do at the Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery inside the Castle. Many other historic buildings and fine architecture can also be found in the area, particularly along Castle Gate and in Old Market Square, and there is a wide selection of food, drink and leisure venues nearby.

Lace Market zone Now part of Nottingham’s proud heritage, the Lace Market was at the forefront of UK lace design and manufacturing throughout the 18th century when there were more than 130 lace factories in this area of the city. Today the magnificent lace and textile factories have been converted into specialist shops, restaurants, cafés and bars, offices, apartments and the city campus of New College Nottingham. The award winning Galleries of Justice Museum, Nottingham Contemporary art gallery and the National Ice Centre are also in this area.

Broadmarsh zone The Broadmarsh zone is the gateway to the city centre for many visitors to Nottingham, with Nottingham Station and Broadmarsh Bus Station situated here. There are lots of places to shop in this zone, particularly in the Broadmarsh Shopping Centre, entered from Collin Street, Lister Gate and Middle Pavement. As well as taking advantage of the excellent shopping, enjoy a stroll along the canal at Castle Wharf and relax at one of the many waterside bars and restaurants. Nottingham Navigator has been jointly funded by Nottingham City Council, Greater Nottingham Partnership and East Midlands Development Agency. Nottingham City Council gratefully acknowledges the contributions from many organisations and individuals in the making of the street panels. Nottingham Navigator was designed by Streetwise Orientation & Navigation Systems, www.streetwisesystems.com

Travelling into and around Nottingham city centre Take a walk Nottingham has great pedestrianised streets and a compact centre that makes it easy to stroll around. Meaning you can walk across the centre in less than 20 minutes. Hop on a bus Nottingham City Transport (NCT) and Trent Barton buses both run a wide range of services into and around the city. The main hubs for Nottingham City Transport buses are located in Old Market Square, Parliament Street and Milton Street beside the Victoria Centre. The best places to catch a Trent Barton bus are Broadmarsh Bus Station, Victoria Bus Station and on Friar Lane just off Old Market Square. For more information visit the NCT Travel Centre in Old Market Square or: www.nctx.co.uk t: 0115 950 6070 www.trentbarton.co.uk t: 01773 712265 Jump on a tram The NET trams provide a quick and easy way to get across Nottingham. They travel as far as Hucknall and serve a number of park and ride car parks. There are five stops in the city centre and it takes less than eight minutes to travel across town. www.thetram.net

t: 0115 942 7777

Call a taxi These private hire taxi companies support a countywide training initiative to improve driver knowledge of the local area and display this sticker. Please quote the relevant reference below when booking. t: 01159 607 607 www.dgcars.co.uk Ref: BTEC t: 01159 50 50 50 www.trentcars.com Ref: TC001

Catch a train East Midlands Trains run a number of local services to and from Nottingham as well as regular trains between major cities including London, Liverpool, Manchester, Norwich, Birmingham and Sheffield. www.nationalrail.co.uk www.eastmidlandstrains.co.uk Car parking Eight park and ride spots offer convenient access to the city with over 3,000 spaces. It’s also free to park at any of the five NET park and ride sites when you use the tram. In the city centre there are 15,000 secure parking spaces and a further 1,500 on street. All major car parks are clearly signposted on the main approach roads into Nottingham. ParkSmart/Nottingham Navigator Nottingham City Council has divided the city centre into five distinctive zones, each represented by a unique colour and symbol: Royal - The Royal Centre, The Cornerhouse and Old Market Square Castle - Nottingham Castle, Maid Marian Way and Old Market Square Broadmarsh - Westfield Broadmarsh and the south of the city centre Lace Market - Lace Market, Hockley and Trent FM Arena Nottingham Victoria - Victoria Centre and the north of the city centre These symbols can be seen on road signs and street panels around the city, so that motorists and pedestrians can identify which area they’re in. Electronic signs on routes into the city also display the latest information about available parking spaces, traffic waiting times, incidents, congestion and nearby park and ride facilities. Allowing you to avoid hold ups and find a parking space quickly. See the page opposite for more details.
