    I wish I'd found InterNations sooner: It would have made my first few month as an expat in London much less overwhelming.

Get to Know Nottingham's Community of Expatriates!

Hello there and welcome to the friendly community for expats who are living in or at least thinking of relocating to the Nottingham area. You might be moving to the UK for the first time, or simply relocating to a different part of the country. Whatever brings you to the area, you'll find it easier to settle in with the help of InterNations. Our members are very supportive people who have been through at least one international move themselves and are there to help you to settle. Nottingham is located in the East Midlands, which is quite central in the UK. This means that it's relatively easy to access the rest of the country by car or public transport. If you're looking to travel further afield, there's easy access to East Midlands airport.

Becoming an Expat in the City of Nottingham

Nottingham is a vibrant city that has a strong and thriving economy with plenty of job prospects for both skilled and unskilled workers. In fact, outside of London, the people in Nottingham have the highest average income in the rest of Britain. It is one of six cities that has been selected as a City of Science by the British government; this is as a result of its scientific hub of over 30 scientific and innovative businesses that are located in the Bio City area. Nottingham is also a key UK player in the areas of both retail and finance. If you've started researching the area, you'll probably have heard of the legend of Robin Hood, too. This tale provides a key tourist attraction, with Sherwood Forest attracting visitors from far and wide.
