Averages table

Averages graphs

The graph provides an alternative representation of the average data for your chosen location. By moving your mouse cursor over the graph you can see the average figures for your chosen climate variable for each month.

Location comparison

The comparison graphs enable you to compare the averages for two chosen locations. For example, you can see if one location is, on average, significantly warmer, drier, or sunnier than the other.

Nottingham information

In the East Midlands of England sits the city of Nottingham, a settlement on the river Trent which currently has a population of about 306,000.

Originally famed for its occupation by legendary outlaw Robin Hood, the city of Nottingham boomed during the Industrial Revolution when it became famous around the world for its production of lace and other textiles.

After the Second World War, Nottingham’s trademark textile production fell out of favour when the materials were obtained more favourably from Asia and the Far East and today, the city is now home to some of the most renowned companies across many different sectors.

The Nottingham postcode also includes Mansfield to the west, as well as Grantham to the south-east. The greater Nottingham area is estimated to have about 800,000 inhabitants.

In the city itself there are a great many attractions themed around the legend of Robin Hood and many visitors continue to visit Sherwood Forest and Nottingham Castle in their droves, where they can experience first-hand what life outside the law in the 15th century was like. Every summer the forest hosts the Robin Hood Festival, which is a week-long celebration of the story complete with authentic medieval costumes, re-enactments and live performance of music from the Middle Ages.

As well as a celebration of the past, Nottingham hosts a tribute to the future with its annual GameCity convention. Held at the end of October, it brings together the general public of gaming fans with the writers, designers and developers of some of the best-loved video games in the world, previewing new titles and interviewing gaming talent from all over the world.

Nottingham also attracts a huge following to its sports facilities. Two football teams, Notts County and Nottingham Forest, are divided only by the river Trent but they have contributed to some of the nation’s greatest sporting memories in their own way.

Trent Bridge is a regular host of England international cricket matches and Nottingham is also the home of the National Ice Centre stands — perhaps not surprising given that was also the home of Torvill and Dean.
