Nottingham buses

by cathy9510usa

I need to get from the train station to the Nottingham Moat House on Mansfield Road (supposedly within walking distance of the city center). However, I'm wondering if there's a bus that goes in this direction (A60), and what number bus I should take. Also, where is the Broadmarsh Bus Station in relation to the train station? Thank you very much for your help.

Broadmarsh is about 5 minute walk away from the station.

The 57 and 59 go along the Mansfield road in Sherwood from Market Square not Broadmarsh. Best bet - take the tram from the station to Market Square. Walk across the Square to King Street and catch the bus there outside the Derbyshire Building Society.

Tram tip - get on at the end furthest from the ticket collector. By the time you reach Market Square they may not have had time to ask you for money.

PS the Moat house is walkable but it's quite a walk and uphill for the most part. If taking the bus ask to get out at Clarendon College (part of New College Nottiingham) and the hotel is directly opposite.

OK. Many thanks for your great help. I wasn't wanting to get the bus to my hotel from Broadmarsh but to a wedding in Stapleford (I was told I could get from the center of town to Stapleford by taking a bus from Broadmarsh).

The no.4 Trent Barton bus goes to Stapleford.

See www.trentbuses.co.uk for more info.

Their buses also head north out of Nottingham via Mansfield Road and therefore the Moat House hotel.

May I suggest a Zigzag ticket? £3.80 for all day travel on Trent Barton buses.

Travel Tips for Nottingham

for short people

by redtrike1

Space is pretty much as a premium, so soft bags are best as you can squeeze them into small spaces. I'm not trying to paint a black picture, there is storage, but if you take all your usual luggage then you will find that you will be sleeping on it. Sensible clothing and wet weather gear should be considered, as should sensible shoes. Just remember that you may eb going out in the evenings and that a couple of nice outfits would be good to take. whatever makes you smell nice a camera would be a good idea England is not really noted for its blazing sun and soaring temperatures all year round, so if you are going at the start or the end of the season, be warned that it can be a bit wet and chilly. the central heating inside is good though.

George the Beekeeper

by iwys

3 miles south of the city centre is the Nottingham University district of Beeston. In the centre of its pedestrian precinct is one of the nicest sculptures in England: the Beeston Beekeeper, sometimes known as George. He is sitting on a bench looking across a hedgerow at a beehive. The details, like the bees clinging to the hive and the net on the beekeeper's floppy hat, beside him on the bench, are wonderful.

Modern theatre

by iwys about Nottingham Playhouse

Nottingham Playhouse is a contemporary "ctting edge" venue for modern theatre and dance. A lot of foreign touring companies perform here. For example, I have seen performances by a Chinese opera company and Russian theatre group here.

There is seating for 750. No dress code. Even jeans and t-shirt will be fine.

Visit the largest fair in Europe.

by sourbugger

It is claimed that the "Goose Fair" is the largest annual fair in Europe.

It's currently on it's 710th year and takes place during the first week in October each year at the Forest recreation ground about a mile from the City Centre. (Wed-Sat)

The place is filled with various amusements and sideshows - giving the place a real buzz. Traditionally large amounts of alcohol are also consumed during that time.

Originally the fair was held in the main square in Nottingham, but by the early part of the 20th century the site was inadequate and it was finally agreed to find a new venue. It's been on it's present site since 1928.

So why is it called the Goose fair ?

There is no definitive answer but many think farmers back in the middle ages drove flocks of Geese from Lincolnshire (my neck of the woods) and Norfolk to Nottingham to sell at this time of the year. They had to coat the feet of the birds in a sort of tar to ensure they arrived in a saleable state !

History, Archictecture All In One Day

by Nixter01

Wollaton Hall was built during 1580 - 1588. It was designed by Robert Smythson who shows off its original build and remains. To the back and front it boasts a 550 acre park and was landscaped by a Georgian gardener, Capability Brown. The gardens themselves consist of a large lake, Iron Framed Camelia House which was built in 1823 and is now home to a herd of red deer.
