Local Attractions

​Perfect for culture or shopping - Nottingham is the ideal city break destination. Home to some of the best shopping in the UK, an exciting cultural calendar and recognised nationally for the quality of its restaurants and bars this city has it all.

Check in at the Galleries of Justice MuseumCity of Caves and Nottingham Castle before sitting down to eat at one of our award winning eateries Larder on Goosegate and ​MemSaab. As the evening takes over, why not enjoy an evening of music and entertainment at the FM Arena Nottingham and Nottingham Playhouse? You will be spoilt for choice.

During the days of the British Empire, Nottingham was a world leader in lace making and the Lace Market area was full of impressive examples of 19th industrial architecture. Although it was never a market in the traditional sense, the area is full of salesrooms and warehouses for storing, displaying and selling the lace.

Today, the area has been transformed into one of the hippest parts of the city, with the former warehouse buildings now converted into apartments, bars, restaurants and shops. Along with neighbouring Hockley, it forms part of the Creative Quarter which supports creativity and innovation so you will find plenty of independent cafes and shops here, along with cutting-edge technology firms and music festivals such as the Hockley Hustle.
