Nottingham is known for its strong economy, nightlife, shopping, tourism, and as a sporting centre.

The city boasts the National Ice Centre, the National Water Sports Centre, a world-famous Test cricket ground, two professional English Football League teams, and top-flight cricket and ice hockey sides.

In addition, around 60,000 students attend the city's two universities, the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University, giving the city a large student population.

Culturally, there are two large-capacity theatres (plus a number of smaller ones), numerous museums and art galleries including the Nottingham Contemporary, an independent cinema and several live music venues, including the Motorpoint Arena and Rock City, both of which regularly host major UK and international artists.

Being located at the heart of the UK, Nottingham also has excellent transport links to the rest of the UK and abroad, and the city itself benefits from a state-of-the-art tram system and a good bus network.The city is connected internationally by East Midlands Airport, located to the south-west of the city.
