Throughout the year there are often events running, such as the Christmas market of the beach. Difficult to get through as it gets busy during these times but there's a great atmosphere. There are also lots of photo opportunities.

The space is very open and nice and relaxing to take a break in. The buildings are architectural delights.

Old Market Square is a lovely central part of the Nottingham city centre! There is normally something on and during the summer there is the Nottingham beach and during the Christmas period there is the Nottingham Christmas Markets! Worth exploring.

There is always something happening here. Sadly on our visit all was a bit messy as the Christmas Market and Entertainments were being dismantled. It is a lovely open space in the middle of the city and a good meeting place. I am sure by...More
