West Bridgford

West Bridgford, the area located south of Nottingham city centre, is home to some of the major sporting attractions in the region. Within just a few hundred yards of each other is the third oldest Test Match ground in the world, Trent Bridge, and the City Ground, home to two times European Cup winners, Nottingham Forest.

Head through West Bridgford and you’ll find the National Water Sports Centre at Holme Pierrepont, which boasts an impressive white water rafting course and regatta lake. Water sports aren’t compulsory though, you can enjoy this attraction as a great place for cycling, a gentle stroll or catching the wildlife.

Given the proximity to such superb sports stadia, there are plenty of places to eat and drink. Explore the streets immediately surrounding Trent Bridge and the City Ground. In particular check out the specialist ales at The Southbank Bar, setting off the sporting theme perfectly by being a designated sports bar. Other pubs close by include the Trent Navigation next to Notts County Football Club, the Stratford Haven and the Poppy and Pint.

As you venture into West Bridgford, around Central Avenue and Bridgford Road, there are many other good quality bars and restaurants to try out. Along here you’ll find, Copper Bar Café and Escabeche - a restaurant offering food inspired by the Mediterranean and brought to you by the same team behind the highly regarded Perkins restaurant.

Visitors looking to stay near the cricket or football venues are advised to book early as rooms are in high demand. Nearby accommodation providers include the Talbot House Hotel and slightly further afield but well worth considering is Jurys Inn, it’s an easy walk away and also offers quick access to Nottingham city centre.
