Nottingham life


"A dynamic mix of medieval and modern" 

Linked forever to Robin Hood and his merry band of men in Lincoln green, Nottingham today is a dynamic mix of medieval and modern…. The city boasts fashion designer Paul Smith as one of its own, while the clubs and bars are some of the liveliest in the country.
