    You live in the UK... you are not going to get shot.

    Being the 'gun crime capital' of a country with fifty gun murders a year is like being the sluttiest girl in the nunnery. Snottingham is a joke.

    I've lived here 28 years and can't believe Notts still has this reputation. There are rough areas, there are nice areas like every city, I would imagine. After a few incidents of gun crime putting us above other cities, you wouldn't know really if you lived here. As someone else said, it tends to be within gangs/drugs, not something that happens every day on the street.
    Don't be put off coming here! :-)

    I'm originally from near Bath and am a current student at Nottingham. My advice would be DEFINITELY come to Nottingham; it's not as unsafe as people make it out to be (no worse than any other big city), people only get burgled if they're stupid and leave everything unlocked. Plus, Bath's nightlife is appaling - people sometimes travel to Bristol to go out - whereas in Nottingham you have everything on your doorstep.
