The various aspects of Nottingham as one of the major cities in the UK are reviewed in this paper. Emphasis is given on the city’s culture and heritage as they affect the city’s image as an important tourist destination. It is proved that Nottingham, as a city, has many potentials for further growth, especially due to its council’s efforts to control important social problems, such as binge drinking, but also due to the efforts of the British government to support the growth of all cities across Britain so that they will be able to respond to the demands of the 2012 Olympics.
The performance of cities in terms of culture is judged using various criteria. usually, the range and the variety of cultural events organized across a city are used for evaluating the cultural growth of the city since its establishment (Ashworth and Tunbridge 2000). In Nottingham, culture has a key role in social life. In this context, an Institute of Cultural Analysis has been established at Nottingham Trent University. The above institute aims to highlight that in the current century, the daily life of people is influenced by new trends, such as ‘globalization, the conflict between cultural identities and the interaction between media and economy’ (Nottingham Trent University 2012). It is noted that these trends have been explored, especially as they can influence the life of people and visitors in Nottingham (Nottingham Trent University 2012).
Culture in Nottingham is promoted through a series of ‘cultural events throughout the year’ (Nottingham City 2012). At the same time, nine Leisure Centres operate across the city, so that the needs of residents and visitors in terms of leisure are covered (Nottingham City 2012). Residents and visitors can visit the ‘Museum of Nottingham Life at Brewhouse Yard’ (Nottingham City 2012, Figure 1), which offers valuable information on the daily life of the city’s residents in the 17th century. In fact, museums and galleries are highly promoted in Nottingham, aiming to show the development of the city’s culture and ethics through the centuries. The city council also emphasizes the importance of information for understanding not only the city’s history or its prospects in the future but also the role of sciences in the development of daily human activities.
