Explore the Highlights of Nottingham with a rental car

Nottingham is perfect for long sightseeing trips. The city is widely-known as “the Queen of the Midlands” thanks to a number of picturesque parks scattered within the city limits, including Colwick Park, Embankment, and Arboretum. It is also the ideal starting point for exploring Sherwood Forest, where the legend of Robin Hood originated. Tourists travelling around the city will be able to visit several attractions relating to the English folk hero that add to the overall unique ambience of Nottingham.

Renting a car will grant each traveller full independence when it comes to trip planning. For example, you can choose Old Market Square as the starting point. It is the largest public space in the whole of England. Here, you will also find Nottingham Tourism Centre, which will provide you with all the necessary information about the city attractions. Other places near the square that are worth mentioning include the Neoclassical Council House and the towering Guildhall. The city’s historic district invites tourists to take a long walk through its winding streets. Be sure to visit Nottingham Playhouse to see the famous Sky Mirror.
