I have not been to Highfields since i was a child. It was long overdue, even it was on a cold Saturday morning. It reminded how blessed we are to have such a beautiful lake in front of Nottingham University. The lake was peaceful and...More

Highfields is a lovely place to come and relax, particularly in summer, when the weather is nice and the resident bird population are in full flight. The site itself is 121 acres in size and offers a wonderfully quiet and tranquil place to come and...More

It's not just the imposing university building that draws people here - it's a great park for a stroll. There is a boating lake, stepping stones, fabulous grounds to explore and really good cafe serving food and drink. Why not see a show in the...More

Hidden gem of a park accessable by tram, under advertised but beautifully maintained place. Well worth a visit.

Good place for a family walk/picnic in well kept gardens. Nice boating lake, but queues for boats quite long. Small cafe which we didn't use but looked clean. Separate play park for children.

Highfields Park is a regular haunt. I went at lunch times from work to sit and meditate. It has been an inspiration to my muse in all kinds of weather--when the water is iced over-in sun and in rain with squirrels scampering around and ducks...More

Hi could you tell me please whether Highfields is suitable for a wheelchair user? And is there a disabled toilet?

Highfields is a park area and the paths are fine for wheelchairs. There is a cafe on site so would think there would be disabled toilet facilities. Best contact Nottingham City Council directly to double check.
