The Exchange is one of Nottingham’s most impressive buildings and it has been associated with retail since it opened in 1929. The Grade II-listed shopping arcade houses some of the country’s best-known brands including Dr Martens, Austin Reed, Karen Millen, Oasis, Jaeger and Warehouse, as well as leading art retailers Castle Galleries and a number of independent stores.
Every year, the Exchange becomes even more magical as the Christmas lights twinkle around the orate building. Underneath the dome, a Christmas tree forms the centrepiece of one of the most dazzling festive displays in the city.
As well as the shops, there are plenty of places to go for a relaxing lunch or cup of coffee including Patisserie Valerie and Prêt a Manger.
