Travel in Nottingham
||Nottingham has a
wealth of public transport operating in the city centre,
making it fast and easy for you to get to where you’re
For a start there is the new accessible and frequent NET
tram service, which provides a connection to major
leisure, retail and business areas and the main train
station. The first phase of the route opened in March
2004 and goes from Hucknall through the city’s former
mining areas to the city centre and back again.
Landmarks and tourist attractions that you can visit by
using the tram service include the Theatre Royal, The
Cornerhouse, Old Market Square, and the National Ice Centre.
There are 23 stops along the route with five Park and
Ride sites, at Hucknall, Moor Bridge, Phoenix Park
(near the M1 junction 26), Wilkinson Street and The Forest.
The trams run about every 10 minutes.
The city’s bus service also offers you another frequent
and reliable mode of transport to get to tourist attractions
and surrounding areas.

beyond the city’s boundary to provide daily services
between Nottingham and East Leake, Gotham, Loughborough,
