Work underway at Old Market Square to build Nottingham beach

Work underway at Old Market Square to build Nottingham beach

The grey sky hanging over Nottingham looks more like a scene from November than July. However, work has begun to transform the heart of the city into Nottingham Beach.


Workers and a crane have shown up at Old Market Square to begin construction, preparing for a summer of family fun.



The free seaside attraction attracts thousands of children, parents and grandparents during the school holidays. There’s always paddling, sand, rides and ice cream, but the one thing that can’t be guaranteed is the weather.

The annual beach is operated by Mellors Group in conjunction with Nottingham City Council. The opening date for this year’s event has yet to be announced.
