The Lace Market
During the days of the British Empire, Nottingham was a world leader in lace making and the Lace Market area was full of impressive examples of 19th industrial architecture. Although it was never a market in the traditional sense, the area is full of salesrooms and warehouses for storing, displaying and selling the lace.
Today, the area has been transformed into one of the hippest parts of the city, with the former warehouse buildings now converted into apartments, bars, restaurants and shops. Along with neighbouring Hockley, it forms part of the Creative Quarter which supports creativity and innovation so you will find plenty of independent cafes and shops here, along with cutting-edge technology firms and music festivals such as the Hockley Hustle.
Around the Lace Market you will also find a number of attractions and entertainment venues, including the award-winning Galleries of Justice, Nottingham Contemporary and the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham.
