Where should I buy in Nottingham?

Nottingham has a lot to offer: stunning green spaces, breathtaking architecture, and of course, Robin Hood’s very own Sherwood Forest. Toss concert halls, sports clubs and excellent transport links into the mix and it’s no wonder that property prices are rising in many parts of the city and surrounding areas. 

Whether you’re a first time buyer looking to take your first steps on the ladder or you’re looking to move into a bigger home with your family, it can be hard to find the right area. To give you some inspiration, we’ve created this list of the top 3 areas in Nottingham.

If you’ve got your heart set on a peaceful suburb and you’d like to befriend your neighbours, you’ll feel right at home in Wollaton.

It has its own 500 acre park where you’ll find a museum, lake and even deer. There are plenty of independent shops, pubs and restaurants in the town centre.

So whether you already have friends in Nottinghamshire or you’re starting afresh, it couldn’t be easier to socialise. 

Looking to settle down and find the perfect family home? There are a number of schools rated highly by Ofsted and there’s no shortage of transport links into the city centre and surrounding areas. 

If you love Wollaton but it’s a little out of your price range, try Lenton. Situated on the other side of Wollaton Park, right next to Queen’s Medical Centre, it’s slightly more affordable.

If you work in the city centre, you’ll shorten your commute a little, too.
