The home of Robin Hood and historically a lace making industry, Nottingham is an attractive, deceptively large city that caters admirably for its two universities. In terms of aesthetics it is a very attractive place to live, the University of Nottingham in particular has some stunning buildings. The two universities are quite separate, Nottingham Trent is in the centre and the University of Nottingham is to the west on the outskirts of the city. Shopping is good here with all sorts of high street brands easily accessible and the nightlife thrives. Transport is also good in the town, mainly thanks to the introduction of a tram network in 2004.
