A bit more about Mapperley Park …

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 and steeped in local history.

Today the area is a fusion of properties from modern apartments through to stunning period homes. It offers both young professionals and families a central location in Nottingham, from which to enjoy all that the City has to offer, within a peaceful hideaway. It is a popular location for medical professionals by virtue of its close proximity to Nottingham’s City and QMC Hospitals and its easy access to King’s Mill Hospital in Mansfield.

It is home to two private tennis clubs. Mapperley Park Tennis Club on Mapperley Hall Drive has four allweather courts, two with floodlights, a practice wall and modern clubhouse. One of the oldest tennis clubs in the city is Magdala Tennis Club which has 3 all-weather “carpet” courts and 2 hard courts, and due for a major refurbushment in 2013/2014.

Mapperley Park is within walking distance of two of the best private schools in the country – The Nottingham Boys’ High and The Nottingham Girls’ High Schools. In addition, both St Joseph’s and Holygirt Schools offer high educational standards with exceptional pastoral care. As a result the area is in demand with families who have children at any of these respected schools.

Wherever you are in Mapperley Park you benefit from quality amenities on your doorstep, whether it is the promenade of independent shops on Mansfield Road and Woodborough Road, or a wider choice including restaurants and bars in nearby Sherwood. The newly refurbished Park Inn Hotel offers an indoor swimming pool, spa & sauna and the ‘Savoy’ bar & grill restaurant and is situated at one of the entrances to this highly soughtafter area.
