Derby Road

Take a stroll out of the city centre towards Derby Road and you will soon enter an area with an unassuming sophistication full of high quality, often family-run, shops. Offering speciality goods and services, such as musical instruments at Windblowers, beautiful and unusual artisan crafts at Focus Gallery, and elegant home and garden wares at The Worm that Turned, this is the place to go if you want to add something special to your home or buy a unique gift.

The Derby Road area is also well-known for its excellent selection of pubs and restaurants which include the Hand and Heart. A favourite among real ale drinkers, this traditional pub is actually in a cave and serves wonderfully hearty homemade food. Further up the road The Sir John Borlase Warren boasts a leafy back garden and terrace, which is a divine place to lap up the rare British sun, and The Organ Grinder, a good old traditional pub with a great range of ales. Or try the Warsaw Diner, a restaurant renowned for its fry-ups . . . and vodka!

Stroll back towards Nottingham's city centre will find Cast, a modern restaurant, deli and bar at Nottingham Playhouse just off Derby Road. During the summer months you can relax in the sunshine in the shadow of Anish Kapoor's iconic Sky Mirror sculpture.
