Why Nottingham?

Home of legendary outlaw Robin Hood, dynamic culture, rich history and sporting glory - Nottinghamshire is one of the UK's top destinations, and a warm welcome always awaits.  

Nottingham is packed with rousing stories of rebellion and virtue – whilst visiting BACCN try and visit the enchanting Sherwood Forest and walk in the footsteps of Robin Hood, learn of castles torn apart by civil war, or enjoy a cocktail in one of the city’s cave bars. You can even trace the daring footsteps of the Mayflower Pilgrims from Nottinghamshire to the Americas, before learning how Nottinghamshire innovations like MRI scanners have helped change the world for the better.

The city is more than just of historical importance, just recently Nottingham City Hospital was transformed from a Victorian edifice into a state of the art 21st century critical care unit!

Nottingham has become the first critical care facility in the UK to have an innovative and bespoke central swivel combined pendant/hoist developed by Drager Medical; making it an exemplar facility for the entire country and leading to it being a finalist in the Building Better Healthcare Awards.
