Nottingham Neighbourhood

The City of Nottingham is located in the East Midlands, the heart of the United Kingdom. It is perfect for a city break or as a stop-off point for any discerning traveller.

Nottingham is easily accessible by car (via the M1), by plane (via East Midlands Airport) or by train from most major cities.

Nottingham (then known as Snotengaham) was originally a settlement which predates Anglo-Saxon times from around 600 AD. Nottingham is now a ‘go to destination’ for many reasons, from studying and business purposes through to recreational and cultural activities.

Nottingham may be famous the world over for Robin Hood & Maid Marion, two icons of our history who are loved by many, however, Nottingham now has so much more to shout about.

Mercure Nottingham City Centre is located in the heart of the city centre and is the most perfectly located hotel for those who truly wish to surround themselves in the liveliest of locations where the best of the city is just a short walk from the doorstep.

Situated in the Lace Market / Hockley area of the city centre, Mercure Hotel Nottingham City Centre is encompassed by an array of well know high street branded and independent bars and restaurants. Curious Tavern, adjoined to the hotel, serves tantalising cocktails as well as draft beers and a selection of Gin’s which will have you spoilt for choice. Other bars considered ‘go to’ destinations for residents and visitors of Nottingham alike are Hockley Arts Club, the Boiler Room and Pitcher & Piano which is located within a beautiful Renaissance period church.

Food lovers will be spoilt for choice. Bar Iberico located next to the hotel serves the most delicious tapas, so much so, spotting famous artists who perform at Motorpoint Arena and The Royal Centre Nottingham enjoying a bite to eat there prior to their performance is not uncommon. MemSaab, a fine dining Indian restaurant is only a short walk from the hotel and is guaranteed to awaken all the senses. For those who prefer high street names, establishments such as All Bar One, Pizza Express, Vodka Revolution and Le Bistro Pierre (to name a few) are just minutes away by foot.

For the lovers of all things cultural and historic, Nottingham has plenty to offer. Nottingham Castle is only a 10 minute walk from the hotel and The National Justice Museum, located on High Pavement, can be reached in less than a 5 minute walk. The former, as it stands now, was built in 1831 after a fire burnt down the original structure. The latter opened as a museum in 1995 within the building which houses 2 courtrooms, an underground jail and a site for executions. At one time the Shire Hall and County Gaol (as it was originally known in the 14th century) was one of the few places within the UK where an individual was able to be arrested, tried, sentenced and executed all within one building.

For shopaholics, Nottingham is a great choice with brands such as Vivienne Westwood, Hugo Boss, Flannels, Diesel, John Lewis through to stores such as Primark, Next and Ted Baker lining the streets around Mercure Nottingham City Centre. Victoria Shopping Centre which houses some of these brands and more is located at the foot of George Street where our hotel stands making it the ideal place to stay.

Also at the foot of our road is the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham. With a capacity of 10,000 people, Motorpoint Arena Nottingham is a fantastic venue to see your favourite singers, comedians, dance acts and sports teams perform. Royal Centre Nottingham also showcases many spectacular shows at both the Royal Concert Hall Nottingham and Theatre Royal Nottingham, both being only a 10 minute walk from the hotel.

Mercure Hotel Nottingham is also a great choice for any guest who wishes to put their feet up after a day at work in the city or to use as a base for the night prior to their onward journey. With convenience stores such as Sainsbury’s and Tesco across the road from ourselves, both are ideally placed should you wish to pick up any essentials prior to winding down and enjoying a night with us.
