The route:
Start: Maggie’s Nottingham – Built in 2011 and designed by Piers Gough, the Centre appears almost to float among the trees, which shelter it from the main building of Nottingham City Hospital, and its sense of symmetry and shape create a sense of space and balance.

New Art exchange ­– our first stop is a contemporary visual arts space in Nottingham that celebrates the region’s cultural richness and diversity. It is the largest gallery in the UK dedicated to culturally diverse contemporary visual arts.

Nottingham Castle – situated on a high rock, Nottingham Castle commands spectacular views over the city and once rivalled the great castles of Windsor and the Tower of London. Its history is chequered with sieges, murders and intrigue.

Trent Bridge – the world’s oldest test match venue. Trent Bridge’s serene pavilion, kept within the architectural parameters of its 1889 foundation, is thought of as one of the most renowned trademarks of cricket because it faces the wicket at an angle.

Finish: Ballroom in the Council House – Nottingham Council House is the city hall of Nottingham and will be welcoming our walkers at the end of their 9 mile adventure around the city. The iconic 200 feet high dome that rises above the city is the centrepiece of the skyline and looks over the Old Market Square.
