Walking in Nottingham

We have a number of walking routes that can help you discover your local area, landmarks and heritage, whilst boosting your physical and mental health.

Explore the cobbled streets of the Lace Market or Castle area or take a stroll in one of Nottingham’s 32 green flag award-winning parks. Walking is a great way to see some of Nottingham’s hidden secrets. Significant developments in recent years have dramatically changed Nottingham to be a pedestrian-friendly city. You can find an accessible list of walking routes on the following pages:

You can walk from Lister Gate in the south to intu Victoria Centre in the north without crossing any major roads. As part of the Broadmarsh regeneration, the goal is to extend this pedestrian area southwards connecting the Station with the rest of the city centre.
