There's almost always something happening in the Market Square whether it's stalls dedicated to some theme, or the beach in the summer or the lovely Christmas market in the winter. Be warned though, whatever is happening there will NOT be cheap! The rides and attractions...More

Very much a focal point for the city and always lots going on in and around. Good mix of shops, cafes, restaurants etc and major stopping point for the tram. We went late evening and great to see the area all lit up.

Right in the city centre. Fountains, Lion statues and memoires of my childhood. Relax here after a busy day shopping. Lovely during summer

No market and not muchsign of an old square. The whole place has been subsumed by building works and the feel is of modernity with no sense of the history we expected. Worst part of our day in Nottingham
