Nottingham Road is a small village just off the N3 near Mooi River.

Sometimes it is referred to as the heart of the Midlands Meander. The Midlands Meander is the name for a collection of diverse attractions spread out across the KwaZulu-Natal midlands. This route is a popular destination for tourists and day visitors alike.

The area around Nottingham Road is very scenic with lush rolling grasslands. The Drakensberg Mountains are not that far away and can be seen in the distance.

Nearby is Fort Nottingham. In the 1800's the garrison here were kept busy trying to defend farmers flocks and herds from raids by the San people who had living on the lands for centuries before English colonization.

Nottingham Road is a good place to stop if you are looking for a place for coffee and something good to eat, after which you can visit the many craft stalls in the area. The town is also well known for its brewery.
