The Midlands city of Nottingham, forever associated with the legend of Robin Hood and the dastardly sheriff, is a medieval market town built along the banks of the River Trent. Its compact centre is awash with architectural gems, like the domed Council House, Nottingham's city hall, which towers up over the Old Market Square and the 19th-century Gothic cathedral. If you're lucky enough to have nabbed one of the Nottingham bed and breakfasts close to the centre, you'll be a stone's throw from several museums, art galleries and a ton of top eateries. Nottingham's student population ensures that there's always lively nightlife, whichever day of the week you're in town, and during the summer, there's a seemingly never-ending number of weekend music festivals and outdoor events.
The bed and breakfasts in Nottingham make ideal bases for exploring the city. They're perfectly placed near the city centre, have owners whose knowledge helps you experience the city like an insider and they're a fraction of the cost of a hotel. There are B&Bs for all tastes and budgets. Some are boutique affairs, with original period features and luxurious little touches, others are housed in swish apartments, with views overlooking the city. If you're looking to save your cash for the restaurants and nightlife, you could always pick one of the budget options – the service and guestrooms are still well above par – or nab one of the country cottages in the heart of the pretty Nottinghamshire countryside. The best place to find the perfect match is on Expedia, where you can search by price and location, then book in just a few clicks.
When you've checked in, you'll find that most of the bed and breakfasts in Nottingham have all the guestroom facilities that you might find in a hotel. Get connected to the free WiFi to start looking at things to do in the city while you make a freshly brewed pot of tea. You'll often find a spacious ensuite bathroom, stocked with toiletries and towels, and a flat-screen TV on the wall, so you never have to miss out on your favourite TV show. The in-room desk is the perfect place to catch up on a few of your work emails and there's always plenty of storage to put away your things in your little home away from home. If you've got particular needs, like rooms that welcome pets or a free parking spot for your car, you'll never have trouble finding them on Expedia. Every morning, there'll be a home-cooked breakfast waiting for you downstairs, with everything you need to set you up for a day of sightseeing. After Nottingham, why not nab one of the Birmingham bed and breakfasts, just an hour or so away by train?
History buffs will feel right at home when they stay at a bed and breakfast in Nottingham. Nearby, you can visit the 17th-century Nottingham Castle, which is perched atop a hill and houses a unique collection of artwork from across the ages, or the iconic Nottingham Cathedral, built more than 150 years ago. Alternatively, try Wollaton Hall and Park, an Elizabethan country estate surrounded by botanical gardens and beautifully manicured lawns, or Rushcliffe Country Park, where more than 5 miles of walking trails criss-cross grassland teeming with wildlife. Bringing the kids? They'd never forgive you if you didn't take them for a day at Adrenalin Jungle, where they can race around parkland on quad bikes or clamber around on the assault course.
