A little bit about the city: Nottingham

Having been named the UK City of Literature, culture is very important to the city of Nottingham, with theatres, music venues and art spaces, this city certainly has something to offer everyone. At the edge of the Peak District, Nottingham is spoilt for green spaces that offer a scenic respite from city life. Ranking as one of the best places to live in the UK, with an excellent quality of life, residents of this city can enjoy an extensive shopping scene as well as a wealth of restaurants, some which are Michelin Star. The city centre is compact and unlike some larger UK cities, it is easy to travel around on foot. With strong transport links, Nottingham is only an hour and a half from London by train with several major airports within a reasonable driving time as well. Along with food festivals and markets, this city hosts a number of gaming expos, so is an ideal location for those passionate about games to get stuck into the gaming culture.

Keep Calm and waka waka...
