Nottingham’s first station was built in 1839, but the rapid expansion of both the city and the railway network soon caught up with it. Nottingham station sits in the heart of the city centre, beside Nottingham canal and just a 10-minute walk away from the famous castle that overlooks the city. The Lace Market quarter, full shops, bars and restored 19th century industrial buildings, is also within walking distance.
