Unlace Nottingham’s lacemaking heritage
Nottinghamshire was once the heart of the world’s lace making industry, and it has a proud industrial heritage still strong today.
The streets behind Nottingham's Council House are known as the Lace Market and Hockley district. The area that once housed 130 lace factories and a population of over 50,000 people has now become a stylish and affluent part of the city centre.
There’s independent drama at the Lace Market Theatre with a whole host of shows from comedy to occasional music performances; but what really makes the Lace Market and Hockley district special for most people is the array of stylish bars and restaurants set among its smart backdrop.
