Taxis and Transport

Here's a few helpful travel-related bits and pieces to help you get around. If you're calling a taxi from our wedding, the venue is Colwick Hall Hotel (pronounced Collick), near Colwick Park, NG2 4BH. Remember, it'll be Saturday night and therefore pretty busy, so maybe try and book an hour or so before you want to leave.

Nottingham Tram (NET)

Our trams are clean and smart, and run through the city centre, stopping at Station Street (the railway station), Lace Market, Old Market Square, Royal Centre, Trent University (for Premier Inn hotel) and out to Phoenix Park for Premier Inn Nottingham West. One journey is £2, a day pass is £3.50, and a week pass is £15 — available on the tram, from the NET Travel Centre on King Street, or via their My Mobile service.

Trent Cars

Simon has relied on Trent Cars for years. Good for texts and callbacks. Try them first.

DG Cars

They call themselves "Nottingham's number one taxi firm'. Why not use our wedding to assess this claim.
