Today, Beeston is one of the most popular areas to live in Nottingham, thriving with a busy high street and its own Tesco Extra, Sainsbury’s and Lidl supermarkets.
The town is set to take centre stage in becoming a new vibrant hub with a range of leisure facilities. This exciting soon-to-be-built development will be part of the highly anticipated ‘Phase 2 of Beeston Square’ project which will provide a cinema and a wider choice of food and drink venues.
The town is home to several banks, friendly cafes, independent and high street retailers and bars including Bendigo Lounge, Das Schuhzimmer, Rye and The Berliner. It also boasts a range of quality restaurants including Cafe Roya with its vegetarian options, The Frustrated Chef serving world tapas, the Lobster Pot specialising in quality seafood, and Amores – serving fine Italian cuisine.
Throughout the year, Beeston Marina provides peaceful waterside walking and cycling routes as well as its own bars and cafes – forming part of the Nottingham City Big Track Network.
For commuters, Beeston is situated close to the head office of UK pharmaceutical giant Boots, as well as Nottingham’s Queens Medical Centre and the University of Nottingham’s main campus. Direct tram and bus links connect Beeston to the East Midlands’ capital city of Nottingham. The town also has its own train station with major routes running to London, Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham.
For families, local schools are easy to access and all are rated ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ in their most recent Ofsted reports.*
