The Big Track

The Big Track Interactive Map

The Big Track is a ten mile car free route that runs between Trent Bridge and Beeston Marina along the River Trent and canal. The route is great for walking and cycling and connects lots of places around the city, as well as providing easy access to many of Nottingham’s sporting, arts and leisure venues.

It’s an ideal commuter route, passing Boots, Games Workshop, NG2, County Hall, Nottingham Train Station, the Inland Revenue and Castle Marina.  Our maps show access points to get onto and off the Big Track.
