Shopping is mediocre, not a lot of shops and they usually close at 5 or 6pm. However there is a lot of variety of food. Entertainment in Nottingham includes bowling alleys, cinemas, casinos and theatres so there is generally lots of things to do if you have the budget for it and live near the city centre. Nights out are quite decent, there are events happening almost every night, with entry being quite reasonable prices, sometimes the clubs even have free entry and a free drink on certain days. Accommodation is generally quite reasonably priced so I would say that the overall value for moneyis worth it.
