A taste of city life

Goose Fair is one of Europe’s largest travelling fairs and is one of Nottingham’s oldest traditions, dating back more than 700 years. Bustling commerce is still one of the highlights of the city centre, which offers inviting streets and alleyways with everything from designer boutiques to high street favourites. From street food markets, cafes, independent bars and micro-breweries to Michelinstarred restaurants, there is a taste, a tipple and a cuisine for everyone.

Across Nottinghamshire there are plenty of iconic foods to try, eat and take home. From luxurious ice-cream from a local dairy farm, to mouth watering Stilton cheese, every type of home grown produce is within easy reach. The surrounding towns and villages offer a wealth of great independents selling handcrafted gifts, vintage books, exotic plants and antiques. Nearby Newark-on- Trent hosts one of the biggest antique fairs in the country.
