The regional economy of Nottinghamshire was traditionally based on industries such as coal mining in the Leen Valley and manufacturing. Since the invention of the knitting frame by local William Lee, the county became synonymous with the lace industry.
The main railway in the county is the Midland Main Line which links London to Sheffield via Nottingham. The Robin Hood Line between Nottingham and Worksop serves several villages in the county. The East Coast Main Line from London to Doncaster, Leeds, York, Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Scotland serves the eastern Nottinghamshire towns of Newark and Retford.
Your serviced office in Nottinghamshire could not be better connected to the rest of the UK and beyond. The M1 motorway runs through Nottinghamshire, connecting Nottingham to London, Leeds and Leicester by road. The A1 road follows for the most part the path of the Great North Road, although in places it diverges from the historic route where towns have been bypassed. The A1 now runs between Retford and Worksop past the village of Ranby. Many historic coaching inns can still be seen along the traditional route.
East Midlands Airport is just outside the county in Leicestershire. The Robin Hood Airport lies within the historic boundaries of Nottinghamshire. Both airports serve the county and its neighbours with services to most major European destinations. East Midlands Airport now also runs services to North America and the Caribbean.
As well as local bus services throughout the county, Nottingham and its suburbs have a tram system, the Nottingham Express Transit.
