West Bridgford has lots to offer, depending on what you’re after!
Grab a bite, drink, & evening entertainment...Head down to Central Avenue and there is no end in choice of places to eat, whether it be for a bite, a drink, or something more substantial. There are cafés and bars where service continues all day and into the evening, such as Belle & Jerome, or Copper Bar Café (including yummy breakfast/brunch!). You’ll often find people relaxing on the chairs outside (when the sun shows itself!). Equally, there is Fire & Ice, The Monkey Tree and The Oriental Pearl/Pearl Bar which transform into a vibrant social scene during the evening.
There is always the option of beginning your night in West Bridgford and then catching a bus, outside Fire & Ice, for example, into Nottingham where you can explore the nightlife further. If you fancy a calmer evening, West Bridgford has a number of restaurants to offer. What do you fancy? Something laid back and tasty? Head to Pizza Express or Mud Crab, with a mixture of Australian and American influences behind the menu: you can’t miss it – the impressive glass building on Central Avenue. Carluccio's has also just arrived in West Bridgford! Perhaps you fancy tapas? Head to escabeche, situated opposite Pizza Express.
Alternatively, head to the opposite end of Central Avenue, towards Trent Bridge and you’ll find The Larwood & Voce, or The Riverbank Bar & Kitchen – exceptional food food and again, should you fancy it, evening entertainment.
Or fancy a night in? There are plenty of takeaway options: Rectory Fish Bar does especially delicious Fish and Chips.
If you feel like cooking, there are a number of food shops, including Marks & Spencer, or even closer to you, the good-old reliable Co-op, and for a treat later, pop into Thorntons for all your ‘sweet-tooth’ cravings!
Wander around the shops…If shopping is your forte, West Bridgford has a number of unique shops which you can’t find anywhere else! Drop into Delights for a range of gifts – or treat yourself – why not! There are also some clothing stores, including footwear shops, all close-by to Central Avenue. Also, for all your daily health and pharmacy needs, there’s Boots, for book-lovers there are book shops, for a bargain, there are charity shops and if you are in need of some pampering, an array of salons to choose from.
Sport...You’re in luck. West Bridgford is host to Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club. Or if football is more your thing, there’s both Nottingham Forest Football Club AND Notts County Football Club at your doorstep.
Fitness...Outdoors or indoors, there are a number of places you can go – whether for something gentle, or something to really get you heart pumping.
•Holme Pierrepont – including water rapids, canoeing and other exciting outdoor activities.
•West Bridgford Park – including tennis courts, or for a gentle stroll. There are also pretty gardens and a play area for children.
•River walk along the embankment. Cross the ‘rickety rackety’ bridge – but don’t look down!!
•Rushcliffe Arena (without swimming pool).
•David Lloyd Leisure, Roko Health clubs (both with pools).
On offer at all clubs such as these are games such as badminton, squash and so on (book your court beforehand).
If you happen to go to any of the local places, feel free to mention that we recommended them! That way we can continue to work together with local businesses in supporting each other! ☺
Further afield...Head into Nottingham and there is plenty more to choose from, again, depending on what you feel like – shopping, cinema, clubs, bars, restaurants, cafes, tenpin bowling, and so on – and easily accessible by bus, or there are car parks if you’d prefer to drive.
Hopefully this information has been helpful. If you have any other queries regarding anything during your stay please do get in contact and we’ll be happy to help in any way we can! ☺
With that said, there’s one final thing to say… ENJOY!!
Getting around and about…
To get to the end of Muster’s Road from Nottingham or the train station, you can catch the 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10. Ask for Trent Bridge.
To go into Nottingham or to the train station just turn right out of the flat, at the end of the road go left, just a few feet and you will find a covered bus stop and any green Nottingham City Transport bus (not the other colour buses) will take you into town.
The fare is £2.00 one-way, or £3.50 all day and you will need the correct change.
West Bridgford has extremely good transport links and a number of buses travel through. Through the nctx website you can find all timetables and information regarding bus routes in and around West Bridgford. Waiting time is usually less than 10 minutes.
Other Things to Note
Our buses have the oddity of taking correct change only! Save your change for them - they are well worth it, very frequent and handy but get expensive if you keep having to use notes! £2.00 one way, £3.50 day ticket and sometimes - like weekend and holidays, you can get cheap day family tickets for 2 adults and 2 kids for as little as £4.50.
No Smoking & no pets please.
This is a residential area, so please bear that in mind and keep noise to a respectful volume. Have an enjoyable stay!
Great welcome from Katie and if you don't know the area, don't worry Katie gives all relevant info of things to do. The apartment is just as described, modern, clean and a really nice place to spend your time
A notre demande, un lit BB avait été mis à notre disposition ainsi qu'une chaise haute. Les essentiels pour démarrer notre semaine étaient à notre disposition aussi.
Logement clair, ensoleillé et bien chauffé; quartier calme et agréable.
A lovely compact flat, modern neutral style, with all the basics. Clean and cosy. Well located in the city center but still very quiet (no need of earplugs even if very sensitive to noise). Katie is concerned about the well being of her visitors and is very helpful (offering her services beyond hosting!). She can even provide a cot and a high chair (we travelled with our 6 months baby). We were very glad to be able to extend our stay very simply in such a good place. We just can only recommand her.
Katie made us feel very welcome and made sure we had all we needed, especially as we were staying over Christmas. Even left us a card and Christmas present which was a nice personal touch.
Lovely apartment at a great location. Katie is a great host and always very promt and helpful. Thank you Katie!
Katie was such a nice hostess. We needed a place to stay in Nottingham and we sorted everything out in just a couple of hours. The appartment is quite nice nad is placed in a nice neibourghood. A good place to rest and enjoy Nottingham.

About the Host, Katie
I'm a Londoner in Nottingham - it's a fabulous place. It's the theatre that I love, and being in the middle of a community full of precious gems, characters and fun.
I like to make sure that people enjoy their stay & get as much help as they want from me, if that's lots of local guidance about outdoor amenities and restaurants and entertainment and I recognise that some people just want to come away and relax on their own.
I have enjoyed helping people with ideas for cooking in or for eating out, for local walks and bike rides and for helping people to settle into the area when they are relocating.
