This nice square is right in the city centre. One major plus point is the number of seats of which there were many. Great place to sit and people watch and see the fountain.

This is a nice part of Nottingham, it has a lovely water feature, seats to sit on and is near to good shops/food and beverage sites. In the summer it hosts "Nottingham beach" which is a free small beach and paddling type pool. In the...More

This is a large public space which is used for events. It gives a bit ov breathing space but in my view lacks charm due to a lack of trees, planting and green space. It is a bit too urban for me but it does...More

Another must visit place in Nottingham, the city centre feeling, pleasant square. Not comparable to big squares of large cities, but kind of a fit for Nottingham.

We spent a while enjoying looking at the water, reflections and fountains and felt it was really rather lovey but it is a shame people think it is acceptable to put rubbish in there. Plenty of places to sit

The old market square is a very central place to meet, most of the shops (intu Victoria Shopping Centre, Primark, Debenhams etc.) are near, also the theatre playhouse, pubs (e.g. The bell inn) - and many historic buildings. Good place to start from!

The market square is a nice place to look at but when nothing much is going on it is soul less. What a shame that it is not utilised all the time in some way or other.
