Planning a trip to Nottingham is so easy. In this article, we show you how to get to Nottingham and find your way to your hotel.
Nottingham’s weather goes from mild temperate summers to chilly winters. Temperatures range between 4°C in winter and 17°C in summer. With an average of 8 to 10 rainy days in a month, Nottingham is truly a wet city.
However, the city is truly a tourist destination. From mid-June to mid-September is the peak tourist season and the weather is at its best. Schools are on holiday and the weather is warm. There are so many outdoor activities and festivals to attend during this time.
If you don’t like the summer crowd, then May to mid-June and late September to October will be the perfect time to visit. The hotels’ rates will be cheaper too.
