With its array boutiques, vintage stores and chilled out cafes, Hockley is one of the most creative communities in Nottingham.

From Old Market Square, go up Pelham Street where you will be greeted by one of the most beautiful buildings in the city. Now home to Zara, this ornate building was built in 1904 and was once the flagship store of Boots the Chemist.

Goosegate, which is the main street in Hockley, is full of European-style pavement cafes and independent businesses such as cake decoration shop Danielle Gotheridge, book store Bookwise and alternative shop Ice Nine.

Tucked away on St Mary’s Gate you will find Debbie Bryan Studio and Shop which is a treasure trove of beautifully-designed pieces, many of which draw on Nottingham’s lace-making heritage.

After all that shopping you can while away the afternoon with coffee and cakes at Homemade or Hartleys. Or why not immerse yourself in the creative surroundings of Broadway Cinema and Cafe Bar?

Hockley is known for its outstanding nightlife and there are plenty of bars and restaurants to explore. Food lovers will be able to indulge their passion for great British food at the Larder on Goosegate, while Aurora offers a unqiue dining experience and at Anoki you can enjoy some of the best Indian fine dining in the city.
