If you are in need of a budget hotel the Days In Hotel on Wollaton Street offers rooms from just £34 a night. To book a room call 0115 9128000.

 

Transport

NCT Orange line - 34, 35, 36, 37 from outside Victoria Centre (John Lewis) every 2-3 minutes. You need to get off at "hillside" (just by the shops and subway). Most nct buses have a display advising which is the next stop however if you miss the stop just get off at the Queens Medical Centre hospital and walk back, it is only a couple of minutes. It takes around 15 minutes to get there from the city centre. It is currently £1.70 for a single, £3.40 for an all day ticket or you can use your city bus pass.

 

There is also a free bus called medilink which runs between Nottingham City Hospital, Wilkinson Street park and ride (tram stop) and Queens Medical Centre.

 

If travelling by car there is a map on the website at http://www.angelsbyday.co.uk/Find-out-more/Maps/. There is also a reasonable sized car park that never seems to be full. 

Social life

Nottingham is a large city with a variety of fun things to do. You can go shopping and enjoy shops such as TOPSHOP, MISS SELFRIDGE, H&M, LINKS OF LONDON, JACK WILLS etc. There is the Corner House which has a cinema, bars, restaurants which is great for going to see a movie and grabing some dinner. For a night out in Nottingham you have plenty of bars and clubs to chose from such as Rock City, Oceana and Yates.

 

 

Things to do, things not to do

Try to make time to visit the nusery before the placement to make sure it will be suitable and meet the staff.

Arrive early on the first day to get set up with a finger print (which is used to gain access to the nursery), a locker key, and have a health and safety induction.
