I am looking for nice/ok areas in Nottingham city centre- must be near to the train station as I need to travel to work in Sheffield on shifts for the next 12 months. My partner works in Nottingham city centre.
The tram doesn't run early enough to get me to my train on time for a 7am start in Sheffield so a bit limited on distance really.
Can anybody tell me what the Lace Market area is like? We are a couple in our twenties so not adverse to a night out but don't want to be kept up all night by students or people partying if I can help it!
Also what about Carlton Street, as I know this is near the city centre but not sure if its a bit dodgy or not?
I am a woman and will be travelling to the station to and from these areas at unsociable hours and I don't want to feel/be unsafe!
Can anybody recommend any other areas? It doesn't help that we are a little picky and looking for an area with a bit of character- not the usual modern beige tiny apartments!
