The county town is Nottingham, an impressive city with its great shopping and selection of bars and cafes and two universities which make for a lively student population. Other major towns include Newark, Worksop, Southwell, Hucknall, Bingham and Mansfield. There is a wide choice of new build properties and new homes for sale.
There are great transport links, with the M1, A56 and A42 running through the county, while East Midlands airport is also not far away, located just outside Leicester. East Midlands Trains run north and south into and out of the county and cross country to Cardiff.
Nottingham has more sports facilities than any other European city, some of which are home to top sporting teams like Nottingham Forest Football Club and Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club.
