The Park Estate was originally created from Nottingham Castle’s deer park and is now recognised as one of Nottingham’s finest residential locations, boasting notable architect’s work including PF Robinson, Watson Fothergill and TC Hine – many of these fine properties are still seen here today.
By the late 1800s The Park had over 400 houses; former residents include national figures such as Sir Paul Smith, Sir Jesse Boot, Sir Albert John Player and A J Mundella.
It is a thriving community with its own resident’s website www.parknews.co.uk
It also boasts one of the largest gas street lighting systems in Europe and a skyline including the castle which makes it particularly atmospheric at night.
One of the reasons for The Park’s popularity is its proximity to some of the best private schools in the region. Both the Boys’ and Girls’ High Schools have a national reputation of academic and sporting excellence whilst St Joseph’s also offers high educational standards.
The Park Estate offers a tranquil haven with the buzz of the city just minutes away. Nottingham Playhouse offers world-class productions, local restaurants include Hart’s, a busy restaurant with a modern British style and a boutique hotel and World Service – the ‘Best Overall Restaurant’ in Nottingham’s prestigious restaurant award for four out of the last five years.
The Park’s squash club has 10 squash courts, a fully equipped gym, saunas, steam rooms and a bar and restaurant whilst adjacent are two tennis clubs, one with all weather courts and one for lawn tennis!

Mapperley Hall, originally built around 1792, was owned by the Wright’s – a local banking family. The last member of the family to live at the Hall was a Colonel in the British Army and many of the street names are associated with military campaigns such as Magdala Road (Magdala military campaign 1867-1868) and Lucknow Drive/Road/Avenue (Lucknow military campaign 1857-1858).
Today Mapperley Park is one of Nottingham’s finest residential locations, a conservation area with many distinguished Victorian and Edwardian properties set along beautiful and tree lined avenues.
Mapperley Park benefits from two private tennis clubs, a cricket club and is within walking distance to two of the best private schools in the country – The Nottingham Boys’ High School and The Nottingham Girls’ High School.
