The local area guide to living in Southwell

Home of the Bramley cooking apple, Southwell is a pristine, picturesque market town in Nottinghamshire. One of the indisputable highlights of Southwell for visitors and residents alike is its well-preserved Southwell Minster. This Cathedral and Minster features one of the most striking Norman Naves in all of Europe, as well as decorative angels and stone leaf carvings.

The town centre is full of historic, quirky character, including a number of independent shops and cosy pubs. Southwell is also home to a racecourse, a National Trust site called The Workhouse, and a local leisure centre. The charming town comes to life throughout the year with a full calendar of cultural events, including the Bramley Festival, the Gate to Southwell Festival, and the Southwell Library Poetry Festival as well as regular markets, gigs and fairs.

Information about the local residents

While nearby towns like Mansfield and Newark-on-Trent have been reliant on industries like agriculture and coal, Southwell has long been a centre for higher and intermediate managerial occupations. The rate of home ownership in this town is higher than the national average. Its attractive rural location and quiet atmosphere also makes it a desirable spot to retire, and, as a result, the percentage of elderly residents is slightly higher than that of surrounding towns.
