Traffic Information

Traffic Information

Many people choose to arrive by rail and you'll find our Nottingham Rail Station branch in the ticket hall area. Those who prefer to travel by air in the first instance can fly to East Midlands Airport (IATA: EMA) from most major British and European cities. The airport is 13.4 miles from the city and is a 25-minute drive via the A453 Remembrance Way. Alternatively, you can take the Loughborough Skylink bus service and visit our branch at Pavilion Way, Loughborough. It's then just a drive of about 33 minutes to Nottingham on the A60.

Car hire in Nottingham means that you can explore the city and surrounding region without having to rely on public transport. Nottingham is in the heart of England and is affectionately called the 'Queen of the Midlands'. The M1 motorway connects the city with major cities like Leicester (30 miles south) and Sheffield (30 miles north). You'll be close to local landmarks like Sherwood Forest and the Peak District National Park is only a short drive away on Brian Clough Way/A52 or the M1 and A615. Parking facilities are available throughout the city, including at the Talbot Street Q-Park where you will find our City Centre Branch. Others, such as the Lace Market and Nottingham Arena, can be easily located with your SatNav system and there are thousands of on-street pay and display parking spaces.

The city centre is on the River Leen and its southern boundary is close to the River Trent. The centre of Nottingham has a one-way system; traffic on the A6008 Maid Marian Way and A610 Derby Road flows east while westbound cars can use Wollaton Street or Talbot Street. The area around the Old Market Square underwent extensive redevelopment in 2006 - it's bordered by Maid Marian Way and the A60 so although some streets are pedestrianised, it's easy to reach all the main shopping streets by car.

Sightseeing Destinations

Sightseeing Destinations

Sherwood Forest Country Park

The historic forest where the legendary hero, Robin Hood hid from the Sheriff of Nottingham is famous around the globe. Today, only parts of the forest remain, and they are spread out over several estates and country parks including Sherwood Forest Country Park. See the Major Oak where Robin hid with his men or learn more about his tale at the visitor centre.

Attenborough Nature Reserve

Although it is named after the nearby village of Attenborough, this beautiful nature reserve was in fact opened by Sir David. The centre lies at the point where the River Erewash meets the River Trent and it was created by flooding a series of gravel pits. Now home to a vast range of wildlife, your car hire vehicle puts it within easy reach.

Business Destinations

Business Destinations

As well as being a top tourist destination, Nottingham is visited by thousands of business professionals each year. Many business visitors attend events at top venues like the Nottingham Conference Centre and Trent Vineyard Conference Centre.

Summer in Nottingham

Nottingham is perhaps most famous for its legend Robin Hood who resided in the forests. Naturally, over summer it remains a green and beautiful landscape except now with a vibrant and youthful city containing two universities. While in Nottingham be sure to spend some time in Old Market Square, or ‘Slab Square, the largest market square still functioning in the UK with interesting stalls of homemade food, arts and crafts, as well as top restaurants and bars in its vicinity. There are also the caves to explore, the unusual natural geography of Nottingham caused for a network of caves to form that have been used for hundreds of years. For hot weather pack the car with a picnic and relax in Highfields Park, which has a boating lake, flower gardens and views of the University.
