Which train companies offer trains to Nottingham?

Most services from locations in the north and Midlands are provided by CrossCountry and LNER, while the majority of trains from London are operated by East Midlands.

Why travel by train to Nottingham?

If travellers are coming from cities within 150 miles of Nottingham, taking the train will often be the fastest, most comfortable transport option. Express trains cover the distance from London in well under 2 hours, and there's a dense network of connections to major cities around England. In almost all cases, flights will require transfers to out of town airports, waiting for departures, and land-side delays, so trains often work out faster. The station at Nottingham isn't too far from the centre of town, and it's much closer to the centre than East Midlands Airport, which makes travelling by rail even more appealing.

Before you travel to Nottingham by train - good to know!

Nottingham has an efficient network of buses and trams, so getting around the city shouldn't be too difficult. It's probably a good idea to arrange a Robin Hood Network Card for longer stays, as this enables cut-price journeys to most parts of the city. And there's a lot to see and do. From the chance to discover the history of Robin Hood and the stories surrounding Nottingham Castle, it's an engaging place to visit. To get truly "under the skin" of Nottingham, though, nothing beats a cave tour. Nottingham sits atop a warren of sandstone caves, and tours start from the National Justice Museum.

How to get to Nottingham by Train

Nottingham Station is not just the principal rail station for the city of Nottingham itself but also for the Greater Nottinghamshire area as a whole. Managed by East Midlands Trains, the station is additionally serviced by CrossCountry and Northern Rail. Nottingham can be easily reached via rail from major cities such as London (London St Pancras), Birmingham (Birmingham New Street), Liverpool (Liverpool Lime Street), Leeds and Sheffield. East Midlands Airport is less than one hour away via road. A 24-hour Skylink bus service runs between the airport and Nottingham Station seven days a week. There are a number of public transport options to get to the city of Nottingham itself from the station. The city tram network is one of the most reliable of these options, running a regular service in-between the station and the city centre.

Nottingham

Combining history with excellent modern shopping facilities, Nottingham is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK.

Today, the mansion which stands on the castle grounds houses a museum and art gallery. Many visitors to the castle museum also browse the nearby Museum of Nottingham Life, housed in a row of 17th century cottages. Despite Nottingham being so closely associated with history and the legend of Robin Hood, the city's modern side is an attraction in itself. Shopping is a favourite pastime here and it is easy to see why. Featuring designer shops alongside independent stores and antique shops, the shopping experience in Nottingham is varied and exciting. Enjoying an enviable reputation for fine dining too, Nottingham is a city that offers a little bit of everything.
