The town of Beeston is located just over three miles from the city of Nottingham and boasts many shops, restaurants, pubs, and places of interest, making it a town that is frequently becoming a destination of choice for visitors to the county.

For art lovers, a visit to Beeston is not complete without walking through the doors of Chilwell's Creative Corner. This contemporay art space contains regular exhibitions from some of the finest locally and nationally recognised artists. Or, visit the University of Nottingham Campus and discover what's on at Nottingham Lakeside Arts, which regularly hosts live music, theatrical performances and art.

If you fancy exploring the great outdoors, be sure to take in the beautiful Highfields Park situated on the University of Nottingham campus. With its picturesque boating lake and wide open spaces, it's perfect for a family picnic or a stroll while you're in the area. Continuing the boating theme, Beeston Marina is also in close proximity and allows you to explore our many beautiful rivers and waterways. Alternatively, make a stop at Attenborough Nature Reserve, teeming with wildlife and ideal for a leisurely bike ride or an escape into peaceful and serene surroundings away from all the hustle and bustle.

And if you fancy a road trip on your bicycle while you're here, be sure to experience the Big Track Cycle Route, which winds its way through beautiful scenery from Trent Bridge to Beeston Lock, taking in Nottingham city centre and much more.

If you've worked up an appetite, book a table at one of the many tasty local restaurants. Rye Cafe & Bar in the centre of Beeston offer a comprehensive lunchtime and evening menu to cater to all tastes. Another popular choice is Bramley's Brasserie at the Orchard Hotel. providing a luxury dining experience for all its visitors and coupled with a stay at the Orchard Hotel, would ensure that everything is right on your doorstep during your stay. Or alternatively, sample the rich and varied flavours of the orient at Mr Man's near Wollaton Hall - famously home to Bruce Wayne in the Dark Knight Rises.
