Shop and sup in style in Nottingham's hippest neighbourhood

Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

Base your city break in Nottingham’s Creative Quarter, buzzing with bars and restaurants, vintage shopping, quirky retailers and cultural events.

Centred on the Lace Market and Hockley neighbourhood, the Creative Quarter in Nottingham is a lively hub for shopping, great places to eat and memorable nights out.

Find that rare unique piece in one of the vintage shops, be inspired by handmade gifts and original Nottingham lace at the Debbie Bryan Studio, view modern art at Nottingham Contemporary or step underground for Bib Gourmand Michelin dining at Iberico. Visit the new National Videogame Arcade, the world's first cultural videogaming attraction, or see a film at Broadway, the city's top independent cinema. 

With plenty of new restaurants, cafes and bars opening all the time, you’ll be spoilt for choice, and the area comes alive at night with live music venues, underground cocktail bars and craft beer pubs. You won’t want to miss out on the nightlife so book the perfect end to your city break adventure with a stay in one of the stylish boutique hotels nearby, such as the recently re-opened Lace Market Hotel.
