The local area guide to living in Nottinghamshire

Nottinghamshire is a county in the East Midlands of England, made up of six local authorities: Ashfield, Bassetlaw, Broxtowe, Gedling, Mansfield, Neward, Sherwood and Rushcliffe. Nottingham city is not included in this list as it is officially a standalone unitary authority – although it is included in the county for ceremonial purposes.

The county is twinned with Wielkopolska – a province in Poland. It boasts a number of famous residents, such as Olympic ice skaters Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, who trained at Nottingham ice rink. It’s also the home of politician Ed Balls, and was home to the famous writer D.H. Lawrence, who is one of the country’s first noted working-class writers.

Information about the local residents

Nottinghamshire has a population of approximately 500,000, most of whom reside in the area of Greater Nottingham. The population is overwhelmingly white British (approximately 90%) – which is a significant difference to the city of Nottingham. Due to the city’s student population, it has much greater diversity among its residents, and only around 65% of residents describe themselves as white British.

Different authorities have different demographics. For example, North Nottingham and East Nottingham have higher-than-average unemployment rates, while Mansfield and Sherwood have significantly lower-than-average rates (4.4% and 3.5% respectively). Rushcliffe has the most impressive employment figures, with only 1.9% of residents out of work.

Nearby schools

Nottinghamshire has almost 50 state secondary schools, as well as a selection of public schools. Exam results are slightly below average, with 57.7% of students in the area achieving five GCSEs at grade A* to C, compared with the national average of 58.2%.

However, certain schools scored well above average. For example, West Bridgford School – a specialist technology academy – saw 90% of pupils achieve five good GCSEs, and Rushcliffe School reached 83% by the same criteria. Toot Hill School and Minster School also achieved well, reaching 79% and 77% of pupils respectively.

For higher education, the city of Nottingham is a popular student city, home to both the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University. Both institutions draw in a diverse range of students both from the UK and overseas.

Getting around

Nottinghamshire is served by the M1 – one of the country’s major roads – meaning that motorists have easy access to a number of destinations throughout England.

There are also great public transport links. Within the county there are frequent bus services that run through the towns and surrounding villages, and connect the central residential areas.

For intercity travel, the county is served by two rail lines – the Robin Hood Line and the Midland Main Line. The former runs from Worksop to Nottingham, while the latter connects Sheffield, Nottingham and London. From Nottingham city, there are easy connections to London and Birmingham as well as other cities.

For international travel, the nearest major airport is East Midlands, which offers flights to multiple European destinations as well as North America.

Local shops

The bigger towns in the county are generally the best shopping destinations. Four Seasons shopping centre in Mansfield is home to a number of favoured high street shops, fast food restaurants and cafes. There are also several cinemas and theatres in Mansfield, and the football team Mansfield Town – so there’s no shortage of entertainment. Nottinghamshire has lots available beyond the big towns as well. The infamous Sherwood forest, home of Robin Hood, is a very popular attraction, and among others Wollaton Hall and Park present a fun day out.

There are shopping and farmers’ markets in a number of the county’s towns such as Worksop, Bingham, Retford and West Bridford. Here, you can sample local produce, hand-made goods and find bargains of every variety.
