Nottingham (NOT)

Nottingham is a major station on the Midlands Main Line and also the terminus of the Derwent Valley and Robin Hood Lines. It is the only survivor of what were once a number of stations in the city.

Information
Type: National Rail
(Midlands Main Line)
Station code: NOT
Opened: 1848
Platforms: 7
Nottingham was opened by the Midlands Railway in 1848 though was not the city's first station (this being the now-closed Carrington Street station in 1839). The station was rebuilt in 1904 to compete with the new station, Nottingham Victoria, built by the Great Central Railway. Much of the surviving station dates from that rebuild.

Nottingham was renamed Nottingham City and then Nottingham Midland in the 1950s but the name was changed back to Nottingham when the other stations in the city were closed.

The station was redeveloped in the 2010s for £60 million. A new multi-storey carpark was built, as was a new passenger concourse and the station's original Grade II listed architecture restored. The station was also remodelled to add a seventh platform. In recent years the station has also become the hub of the expanding Nottingham tram network.
