Nottingham Beach is back for 2024 and it’s bigger than ever!

Prepare for an exciting sun-soaked adventure as Nottingham's favourite beach returns to Old Market Square. This year, it's revamped with a stunning Santorini theme, bringing the essence of Greece right to the city centre.

The Mellors Group is setting the summer stage with sand, pool, thrilling rides, mouth-watering food, refreshing drinks, and games to keep the excitement going all summer long. Get ready for an unforgettable season of fun in the sun!

Bringing a bigger and better sandy beach and pool area, Nottingham residents and visitors have even more reason to cool off and escape the summer heat, all alongside the new, stylish Santorini-themed beach bar. What makes a beach more than just a beach? Rides and attractions! With something for all the family, expect to see the iconic Starflyer, bungee trampolines, hook-a-duck, bumper boats, and much more.

With summer family activities including volleyball, salsa dancing, and the much-loved movie nights, visit for the full entertainment schedule and to enter your team for the volleyball competition.

For visitors craving something tasty, there will be a variety of stalls offering food, drink, and indulgent treats. Embrace the Santorini vibe with hearty Greek gyros or indulge your sweet tooth with Nutella-filled crepes. For beachgoers looking for an ice-cold drink, the beach bar is the perfect summer hotspot. Enjoy a fruity Pimms or refreshing Aperol Spritz, a pint of chilled beer, or a crisp glass of wine.

Entry is still FREE for visitors wanting to enjoy the beach and paddling area.

Sun-seekers who want to experience all other attractions will be able to get tickets on arrival if they’re available.
