Nottingham is the heart beat of the Midlands, home to legends such as Robin Hood and is one of the most literary cities in the world. It also a hot spot for foodies and culture vultures alike. We scoped out the city through our Instagram lens, and this is what we found.
Robin Hood statue (folklore)
Outside Nottingham castle you will find a 7ft effigy of the infamous outlaw, weighing in at 2.5 tonnes. A perfect selfie opportunity with the big man.
Nottingham Council House dome (architecture)
The stunning neo-Baroque dome of the Nottingham Council Houses rises 200 feet above ground level and is the glittering jewel in the city skyline. A must-snap!
Hockley Arts Club
What do you get if you fuse Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens with an old school boozer and a swanky private members’ club? You get the Hockley Arts Club, which is Kew Gardens on acid. Be warned, it’s so bright your Instagram account might explode.
Ink Sessions (clubbing)Who doesn’t like neon and house music? Plenty of material here to blast your data on. LED ceilings, sweaty students grinding to heavy basslines and digital video walls.
Wowza. Check out the tasty plates at this award-winning Pan-Asian restaurant. You won’t need a filter on the dazzling black cod and spicy miso.
Museum of Timekeeping
Is that the time? Yes. It’s time to learn about the history of this incredible craft and surprise your followers with some stunning timekeeping pieces.
