Nottingham, the self-proclaimed Queen of the Midlands, is said to be one of England's finest cities and its people travel to the city center from all parts of the Midlands for its wide variety of shops and stores. Nottingham was recently ranked the second best shopping area in England outside London with approximately 2 million regular shoppers. There are two large shopping centers, the Broadmarsh Centre with 80 stores, to the south near the main railway station and the Victoria Centre with 120 shops and stores all under one roof about one mile to the North. The area between is full of a wide variety of interesting stores and shops. Nottingham city centre is also famed for its night-life with a wide variety of pubs, inns, clubs and restaurants. Nottingham is also home of the National Watersports Centre.
The city center is also famous for its castle, built after the battle of Hastings by William the Conqueror, with its connections with Robin Hood. This fabled castle was laid to ruins after the civil war. It was near here, on what is now known as Standard Hill, that Charles I raised his standard on 22nd August 1642, to rally support and this began the Civil War. He probable chose Nottingham as he had many supporters in the City. On the castle site there now stands a 19th century building that houses the Castle museum. There are regular tours of the old caves under the old castle.
