The East Midlands city of Nottingham, famed for its Lace making and the legend of Robin Hood, is home to two universities: Nottingham Trent University and the University of Nottingham. Many of the industrial buildings in the city have been redeveloped and have helped modern day Nottingham become a thriving centre for education and commerce. The Lace Market, which is to the south of Hockley, has many streets full of red brick warehouses which have been converted into apartments, bars and restaurants. Adams Building is now used by New College Nottingham.
Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem (The Trip), partially built into the cave system beneath Nottingham Castle, is a contender for the title of "England's Oldest Pub" due to its supposed establishment in 1189. However, The Bell Inn on the Old Market Square, and Ye Olde Salutation Inn (The Salutation) on Maid Marian Way, have both supposed to have disputed this claim. Whichever is the case it is safe to say that Nottingham has several public houses that date back to around the 11th century, or perhaps earlier.
There are two main shopping centres in Nottingham: Victoria Centre and the Broadmarsh Centre. The Victoria Centre was established on the site of the former Nottingham Victoria railway station, and was the first to be built in the city.
