Nottingham is actually a great city full of things to do. From independent shops to the local market. There are also museums that you can visit and the Robin Hood site. They have a very large university with lots of overseas students. They also have the regular high street market and clearance stores owned by next. They have the biggest boots because Nottingham is known as the home of boots as the first store was launched there. They also have the largest primark I know and inside it, is Costa the coffee shop which is great for those who are accompanied by people who do not like to shop I. E men lol or for a spot of lunch after shopping. We enjoyed winter there as we were in the perinatal ward. The city centre has a Christmas Market with lots of different items for sale and activities such as ice skating. There was lots of food stall there too. From German street food to the typical English food such as hot dogs and hamburgers.
