Presently, Nottingham has the eighth largest city economy in the UK and has established itself as the powerhouse of the Midlands. The city prides itself on having a rich, mythical history and very present textiles, digital media and science industries. Whilst salaries may be lower than their London counterparts, Nottingham has been praised for its saver friendly and low cost of living. 


The employment sector of Nottingham is ever-increasing, and there are always opportunities to grow and advance. If textiles or sciences aren’t your forte, there is still a wealth of opportunities in the music industry, retail, and hospitality.

The University of Nottingham is just an 11-minute journey by car to Beeston, so the area has a young and thriving community. 


Beeston is a town that was very popular during the Victorian and Edwardian times and then again during the 1920s and 30s. The city underwent massive periods of growth during the early 20th century, supporting families of workers and mill owners.

The village is a beautiful mix of timber frame barns from the 1700s, early industrial revolution terraced homes, mid-century semi-detached houses and some new build properties. Having played its part in agricultural and industrial industries in the past, the town is a real gem in the Nottinghamshire countryside.

The town was historically known as “Bread and Lard Island” by the people of Nottingham, which referenced that the people of West Bridgford had spent so much money on large houses that they didn’t have enough for a balanced diet.

Safe places to live in Nottingham

Nottingham has always been renowned for its story and history in crime, be it from Robin Hood stealing from the crown and giving to the poor or being the worst city in the UK for bike theft in 2021.


Nottingham’s total population is 323,700, with 226,400 aged 16-64. There are more students (45,300) in Nottingham than people over 65 (38,000).  


But, like all cities, there is a high and low-level crime; it’s just what happens in areas of such economic importance. Here are a few of the safest places in Nottingham to live in:

Keyworth is a village, 6 miles southeast of Nottingham city centre and sits about 200 ft above sea level. The area has an Academy and Sixth Form School, three primary schools, a leisure centre and many open spaces such as the Stanton On The Wolds Golf Course and Rectory playing field. 


Back in 1983, Keyworth was the home of Colette Aram, who was murdered by Paul Stewart Hutchinson, which was the first case to be featured on Crimewatch in 1984. Keyworth has come a long way since then and now provides a safe neighbourhood for young people and families. According to Nottinghamshire Police, in October 2022, there were 49 reported offences in Keyworth, compared to 891 reported violations in Nottingham city centre.

The village consists mainly of large detached houses and closed-off neighbourhoods, allowing for a highly safe environment for families and businesspeople. According to Nottingham Police, in October 2022, there were only three reported crimes in Tollerton compared to 891 reported crimes in Nottingham centre.

Up-and-coming areas of Nottingham

Up-and-coming areas are on the cusp of entering regeneration, which often means they have slightly higher crime rates and lower-rated schools. But, by purchasing property in the growing and coming regions, you can buy cheap and reap the benefits of higher yields further down the road.


Some of the best up-and-coming areas can be categorised by the type of people that currently inhabit them; below, we have included Dunkirk, which is perfect for student housing, Hockley, which is excellent for young professionals and St. Ann’s, which is great for Buy-To-Lets.

Dunkirk is an area of Nottingham located just south of the University of Nottingham, which has a varied mix of permanent residents and student populations. Over the years, the site has attracted more and more students, especially international students and has a population demographic of 60.4% aged between 16-24. 


The area also hosts the largest teaching hospital in Europe, The Queen’s Medical Centre, which employs 6000 people. This vast enterprise means the site is constantly booming with activity and has positively impacted the local community. 


Over the past year, Dunkirk had an overall house price of £273,125, with the majority of sales being detached houses at £420,000. Semi-detached houses sold on average for £259,000, and terraced properties sold for £182,500.

Hockley is a small area of Nottingham, just south of the Victoria Centre, and lies adjacent to the Lace Market area. The site comprises many well-preserved Victorian buildings and has many new-age bars, restaurants and clothes shops. It has been dubbed “the Soho of Nottingham” by the locals.


Over the last year, Hockley had an average house price of £93,833, which was 13% down from the previous year, and 39% down from the peak of 2004 at £152,784.

St. Ann’s is a large area in the City of Nottingham and is named after the patron saint of lacemakers. Originally, St Ann’s was a spring thought to heal people with sore eyes. The area also has a deep history of manufacturing brown earthenware, especially beer mugs. Its population is mainly working class with a very diverse community.


St. Ann’s is constantly undergoing change and redevelopment; the area is perfect for Buy-To-Lets, as there is a very high demand for rental properties. In terms of developments, there is currently a plan to build energy-efficient council homes in St Ann’s and for St Ann’s market to be regenerated with £200,000,000. 


Over the past year, St Ann’s had an average house price of £157,326, with flats selling the most at £112,745. Terraced properties sold for an average of £153,420, and semi-detached properties sold for £202,486.
