Like the fable has it, Nottingham was really long held by the rich, but it resulted in good investment and business to the city. In the 19th century Nottingham earned big money expanding on the lace industry and by the close of the millennium was a powering engine of the region developing on the back of Raleigh bike manufacturing, the Boots pharmacy and cigarettes.
Nowadays Nottingham is far cry from a hotbed for industry, but brims with culture. Along with clubs and restaurants, cricket grounds and forest football club, Nottingham has a word in fashion. It is home to Paul Smith, a fashion luminary.
Away from the glimpses of modernity, Nottingham is a symbol of the most romantic and troubled periods of British history. From the early years the city had troubled days being in the epicenter of events. It often changed names from "The Cavey Dwelling" through "Snotingaham" to modern Nottingham. Even though the city often suffered from Vikings' attacks it managed to evolve into cultural gem centuries later. The famous Nottingham Castle is a reminder of the noble Crusaders, while Old Market Square mirrors 15th century Nottingham.
