Hit the beach in Nottingham this summer

Nottingham Beach

Nottingham’s popular urban beach, ‘The Deliveroo Beach’, returns to Old Market Square this summer, bringing all the fun of the seaside to the heart of the city from today, 22 July.

With 250 tonnes of sand, a paddling pool for children, deck chairs, seaside rides, food vendors and a beach bar, the Nottingham urban beach attracts thousands of families and visitors to the city each summer.

Nottinghamshire might be the most landlocked county in the country, but it doesn’t stop the city from celebrating the seaside each year. The Deliveroo Beach is free to visit, and will also host a number of fantastic events throughout the summer, including live music performances and entertainers.

New for 2016 is a high-flying ‘Around the World’ swing ride, offering a thrilling ride above the city with great views of Nottingham in the sunshine. For those keen to keep their feet on the ground, traditional seaside arcade games such as ‘Hook a Duck’ are also on offer.

Event Details:

Name: The Deliveroo Beach

Dates: 22 July – 4 September 2016

Times: 10am – 11pm
