9 Cool Things to do in Nottingham

4 October 18 words: Hanna Mawla

We all know Notts is full of great stuff to do, but why waste time looking for something, when we've stuck together a right good list of things for you lot to get ya teeth into...

There’s always something exciting about dancing on top of a table, but most places will just throw you out if they find you boozy on the dinner table. So why not go to bierkeller for a night to blow off some steam and down a stein or two. A cheap night with cheesy music and the occasional live screen TV to liven up the atmosphere (until England lost the world cup…).

Cave Tours
Get historical exploring the nature of the Nottingham cave network. If you’re a history fanatic then the City of Caves will be a hidden gem for you, with over 500 original sandstone caves under the streets of Nottingham. Get your mates and history fans some souvenirs to share your day with them.

Highfields Park
The sun has shone for longer than usual this year so, while you still have the chance, head over to Highfields to enjoy the beautiful lake and gardens. Hire out a boat or paddle board and admire the beautiful nature around you. To cool down after all that rowing, you can grab a bite to eat at the Pavilion Café.

Ludorati Café
If you’re feeling a fun and chill night with your mates, then go back to basics with Ludorati’s game and escape room café. Get creative with a game of scrabble and competitive with a game of UNO. This is the perfect place to do something different and it’s only a few minutes away from the city centre - board games, competitions and milkshakes abound.

Planet Bounce
Who didn’t love trampolining back at school? Ok, maybe some people didn’t. But, if you were into gymnastics, flexible or just feel like you want to defy some gravity then why not have a bounce around this inflatable park.Who says trampolines are just for kids...

The Lost City Adventure Golf
If you fancy a tropical kind of night with your partner, friends or family, then Lost City Adventure Golf is where you should be headed to this evening. Transport yourself to the mini jungle and conquer different obstacles with multiple hurdles. Go on, you know you want to win, so show us your hench swing.

Genting Casino Nottingham
Can’t afford a quick trip to Las Vegas but you’re feeling extra lucky tonight? Pull up a chair and bet on some BlackJack. There will be some beverages and snacks on the sidelines to keep you dedicated. Who knows, a standard night could easily turn into the jackpot you never saw coming.

National Ice Centre
If you’re tired of those same old shoes, then why not switch your lace ups to ice-skates? Start your training to become a member of the Nottingham Panthers by sliding around on the ice or to simply show off some fancy tricks to all your mates. If you get ya skates on, Christmas will be here before you know it!

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
