The charity making life better by water

View across Castle Wharf in Nottingham

Nottingham - Castle Wharf

Nottingham's busy and vibrant waterfront district sits on the Nottingham & Beeston Canal and the River Trent.

Castle Wharf is buzzing with café culture and alfresco dining at the water's edge – all overlooked by Nottingham Castle, perched dramatically on a high rock above the city. The canal towpath is a scenic alternative to navigating the city by foot or bike.
