From this vantage point, you can view the amazing architectural history of the City. Pick up the Nottingham Trail pamphlet from the nearby Information Centre and see the sites of the city. Do look above the shop window fronts and see what the Victorians built.

The town square has a lovely water feature/fountain, the big wheel and tram access. As well as all the shops.

This is one of the special places that makes Nottingham Nottingham. At any season of the year, the City Square is a hub of activity and interest. Worth the trip downtown if nothing else.

When the weather is fine, this is the place to sit, eat al fresco, watch the world go by. It has a European feel to it.
