Radford is an area located in Nottingham just outside of the Nottingham city centre. It first started off as a village then during the 18th and 19th centuries, it became part of the expanding metropolis of Nottingham City. Radford today is probably the most multi-cultural part in Nottingham, with more than a third of the population from non-white backgrounds, which gives Radford a diverse selection of food, clothes and cultures.
Although Radford is just to the north-west of the city centre, its boundaries are Western Boulevard to the west, Ilkeston Road to the south, Alfreton Road/Gregory Boulevard to the north and Mount Hooton/Waverley Street to the east. Some of the streets in the eastern part are sometimes called Arboretum instead of Radford. The area between Western boulevard and the railway line is known as Old Radford.
There are mainly victorian properties around the main part of Radford, either side of Alfreton Road. The biggest houses can be found on the main roads such as Radford Boulevard, these houses are mainly let out as multi-occupancy houses as there are usually 6 or 7 bedrooms.

There are a few cottage style terraces on Prospect Street but Radford mainly consists of victorian semis and terraces, some which are available at a good price.
There is a retail park in Radford called Castle Retail Park which has an Aldi, Maplin Electronics, Topps Tiles, Dunelm Mill, Bensons beds and a Gala Bingo.
