Nottingham is an ambitious city with a strong independent spirit, a city that isn’t afraid to disrupt the status quo and do things differently.

A city of leaders and legacy, known for its resilience, its compassion, and its community spirit – just like Robin Hood.

A city that’s leading the fight against climate change, and is on a mission to become the UK’s first carbon-neutral city by 2028,

The biggest business centre in the East Midlands, it’s home to global names including Boots, Capital One and Experian.

A city of employment, education, and opportunity, where progressive minds and creative thinkers can fulfil their potential.

Where start-ups thrive in the refurbished lace factories of the Creative Quarter, a stone’s throw from state of-the-art developments emerging in The Island Quarter, Waterside and Broad Marsh.

Where two world-class universities are global leaders in sustainability, nurturing innovation, and talent to support our strong growing industries – particularly digital technologies with strengths in FinTech, creative, digital and life sciences.

Where everyone is connected through a collaborative business culture and an award-winning clean and green public transport system, and where businesses can capitalise on the opportunities in both UK and global markets.

A vibrant clash of creativity and culture, history and heritage, and world-class sports.

It’s a place that’s moving forward fast and investing in its future.

We Are Nottingham.

Brilliantly Connected

Nottingham is situated right in the heart of the UK, with access to 89% of the UK’s population within a four-hour drive.

We have an award-winning, clean and green, transport system that makes getting in and around the city easy, including our world-class tram system and natural gas buses.

We have two major airports on our doorstep, including the UK’s busiest pure cargo airport.


Over 2.1 million people live in Nottingham’s ‘journey to work’ area, and 30% of that population is under the age of 30.

We’re one of the youngest cities in the UK, with over 70,000 students at our two world-class universities, and 13 universities situated within an hour of Nottingham.

Quality of Life / Cost of Living

Nottingham has it all. Bars hidden in the depths of our historic caves, award-winning independent restaurants with cuisines from across the globe, world-famous music venues, world-class sporting events and unique independent shops.

And you can enjoy it all for a fraction of the cost that you would pay in London and the South East.

Invest in Nottingham

Nottingham has over £2 billion worth of development opportunities, and 60 acres of city centre land ready to be reimagined and redeveloped into a city of the future.
