Motorhome Hire Nottingham

Nottingham lies in a region of low, rolling hills, with the River Trent helping to form the southern boundary of the city and Sherwood Forest occupying the area immediately north of the city. This means Nottingham’s urban environment remains relatively compact, and it never takes long to find yourself on quiet roads leading to traditional villages and uninterrupted countryside. Some of the best places to discover quintessential British landscapes are the Attenborough Nature Reserve and Fairham Brook Local Wildlife Site. No trip to Nottingham is complete without a visit to the 430-hectare Sherwood Forest, a royal forest that is widely recognized as the home of Robin Hood and his merry men.

Getting to Nottingham

Nottingham is located approximately 200 kilometres north of London. The M1 motorway passes by the western extremes of the city and connects it to the British capital, as well as cities as far north as Leeds. Nottingham railway station sees arrivals from right across the country, with several services per hour to and from London St Pancras International, the terminal of Eurostar services from Europe. A modern tram system runs north-south through the city, connecting the neighbourhoods of Clifton and Hucknall via the city centre. East Midlands Airport is less than 25 kilometres from the city centre in Castle Donington. It has regularly scheduled flights to European and Middle-Eastern destinations via Jet2, Ryanair and TUI.

Parking in Nottingham

There is no ban on motorhome hire in Nottingham using the on-street parking bays dotted around the city centre, including at Curzon Street and the Lace Market. However, the size of the bays limits their use by most campervans, as it’s not permitted to be parked over the painted white lines. Instead, it’s much safer to park at the Queens Drive Park and Ride site. If your vehicle is higher than 2.1 meters, you’ll need to phone 0115 986 3205 and book at least 24 hours before arrival, so that staff is on hand to remove the barrier for you. Parking is free, with buses every 15 minutes to the city centre costing €5 per vehicle (up to 5 people). Outside the city, campervans are able to park at Home Pierrepont in West Bridgeford on a semi-official basis for free.
