Nottingham Visitor information

An Introduction to Nottingham

Nottingham, on the river Trent, is an old market town that has also played host to both the Victorian lace industry and the Tales of Robin Hood. The market square remains the largest square in England. Although the town dates back to the 1100's and has an ancient castle, the majority of the impressive architecture is in the Victorian and gothic revival styles as this era was when the town was of greatest importance.

History of Nottingham

Nottingham began in the 6th century as a small Saxon settlement. In the late 9th century the Danes conquered North East and Eastern England. They turned Nottingham into a fortified settlement or burgh.

In 1067 William the Conqueror built a wooden castle to guard Nottingham. (It was rebuilt in stone in the 12th century). Nottingham grew rapidly after the Norman Conquest. 
In Medieval times the main industry was wool making with some tilers and potters as well as goldsmiths. In the Victorain era the alce industry became very important in Nottingham.

Robin Hood is thought to have lived in Sherwood Forest near Nottingham. The story of Robin Hood is first recorded in the 14th century and it is likely it is based on a real person or possibly several real people.

I like the place very much, especially the room. The desk is really big which I like a lot. The bathroom is very nice too. Also, I specially like the heating water thing for making teas and coffee, it is very handy.

(Review Of Bonington Student Village (Campus Accommodation), Nottingham)

The room was very warm (even warmer than outside) even though the heating was not on, and so it was difficult to sleep. Perhaps a fan could be put on the desk?

(Review Of Cavendish Hall, University Park, Nottingham)

We are welcomed and looked after by the staff with warmth, friendliness, helpfulness and humour. Excellent for our needs (attending the Test Match at Trent Bridge). Have already recommended it to friends.

(Review Of Southwell Hall, Jubilee Campus, Nottingham)

Generally very good and very efficient, only comments are that the room was a bit worn and it was difficult to use the shower because it sprayed towards the wall and couldn't be moved and the curtain clings badly to you. However, excellent value for money.

(Review Of Newark Hall, Jubilee Campus, Nottingham)

The room and general facilities were excellent. The staff on duty were exceptionally welcoming and helpful. However the room was not cleaned daily as the details claimed, the tea coffee facilities not refreshed. The lack of parking was a major drawback as access to the site would always be by car.

(Review Of Bonington Student Village (Campus Accommodation), Nottingham)

It was great until we started sharing the halls with a very noisy and quite inconsiderate group. They would knock on our doors at all hours of the night, run and fight in the corridors in the early hours and shout and chat in the corridor at night.

(Review Of Southwell Hall, Jubilee Campus, Nottingham)

It's was everything allright, maybe just internet was a little bit slow. Another little issue: there was no biscuits at breakfast. But anyway these are just very little questions, the overall experience was definitely good.

(Review Of Cavendish Hall, University Park, Nottingham)

Breakfast wasn't the best and coffee real issue. Would be good if you could pre buy dinner. Also the fact you needed a code to book for a university event really made booking a pain would be better if it could be a note that you could add as some people were not able to book when you still had rooms.

(Review Of Southwell Hall, Jubilee Campus, Nottingham)

reception was friendly and efficient the decoration was rather 'tired' although the shower was excellent the breakfast was good. the fridge was very noisey - I ended up turning it off as it woke me up.
