Nottingham is a marvellous blend of old and new. Visit Nottingham and you’ll come across Victorian architecture, a beautifully preserved quarter-mile square and protected heritage area in the Lace Market and Nottingham Castle, the first Norman castle built over one thousand years ago. Wollaton Hall is a 16th century Elizabethan country house while Newstead Abbey was the ancestral home of Lord Byron. There’s also Nottingham Contemporary, an art gallery and exhibition space built in 2009 and into the side of a sandstone cliff and the visual arts space the New Art Exchange built one year earlier. Whatever your reason for visiting Nottingham, staying in a design hotel puts you right at the heart of things, letting you discover a city that delights, inspires and surprises.
What to See in Nottingham
There’s a wealth of attractions to explore in Nottingham too, from Lakeside Arts, the public arts centre situated at the University of Nottingham, to the Horizon Factory, designed in the 1960s and home to Imperial Tobacco from the 1970s. The Horizon Factory is regarded as the ugliest building in Nottingham! But due to its unique structure, it may receive Grade I listed status, giving the building the same protection as the much grander Wollaton Hall and Newstead Abbey, also both to be found in Nottingham. Stay in a design hotel in Nottingham and see for yourself what all the fuss is about!
