Independent Shopping


Nottingham's independent districts have long been established in the former industrial areas and secret side streets of the city. It's here in these offbeat locations that you’ll find some of the most exciting and unique places to shop.

With artists’ showcases, vintage markets and record revivals popping up in creative spaces like Cobden Chambers and The Malt Cross, the city’s alternative scene is constantly evolving.

Boutique gift shop Debbie Bryan and Inspired are treasure troves for one-of-a-kind trinkets and homewares, and if you’re looking for specialist foodie treats and local produce, Delilah and the Treat Kitchen are some the best in the business.

Launched in February 2017 the Nottingham Independent Shopping Trail is available to help you discover Nottingham's best hidden independent shops. Wander through retro arcades, peaceful courtyards, and offbeat districts to find an array of niche, independent businesses offering unique handpicked goods that you won't find on the high street. Either pick up a paper copy from Nottingham Tourism Centre or check out the handy Guidigo App which lets you discover as you go straight from your mobile!

Independent Nottingham is waiting to be discovered - watch the videos below to help you find it!
