Located in Maryland, United States, the unincorporated community of Nottingham is located in the Baltimore metropolitan area.
The character of Nottingham is exemplified by its calm environment. There are a few green spaces nearby for residents to visit, such as Linover Park and Gunpowder Falls State Park, and they are very well-distributed, which makes them easy to reach. This unincorporated community is reasonably quiet overall, as the streets are generally calm - although that is not the case around Baltimore Beltway or John F Kennedy Memorial Highway.
In Nottingham, about 40% of buildings are single detached homes, while large apartment buildings and townhouses are also present in the housing stock.

However, residents may find it difficult to access high schools on foot. Apart from public schools, there are private elementary and high schools.
