Derby Road

Take a stroll out of the city centre towards Derby Road and you will soon enter an area with an unassuming sophistication. Elegant shops like The Worm that Turned sell beautiful items for your home and garden, as well as gifts for your friends and family.

The area is full of high quality, often family-run, shops which offer speciality goods and services including musical instruments at Windblowers. Meanwhile, Focus Gallery offers handcrafted jewellery and artworks and also hosts regular exhibitions and workshops.

Stroll back towards Nottingham's city centre will find Cast, a modern restaurant, deli and bar at Nottingham Playhouse. During the summer months you can relax in the sunshine in the shadow of Anish Kapoor's iconic Sky Mirror sculpture while enjoying a cool drink or meal.

The Derby Road area is also well-known for its excellent selection of pubs and restaurants so click on the box below to find out more. For a suggested trail of pubs around Derby Road check out our itinerary.
