The Lace Market

Lacemaking is one of the key aspects of the history of Nottingham, and a quarter-mile square area in the heart of the city contains great buildings and quaint streets from the city's past. Here you'll find bars, restaurants, tea rooms, museums and shops to enjoy in the present day.

Once the heart of the world's lace industry during the days of the British Empire, it is full of impressive examples of 19th century industrial architecture and thus is a protected heritage area. It was never a market in the sense of having stalls, but there were salesrooms and warehouses for storing, displaying and selling the lace.

The Lace Market adjoins the "Hockley Village" area of the city, and between them they offer many choices of excellent Nottingham nightlife, with the area accommodating many fashionable pubs, bars, clubs, restaurants, shops, hotels, the Lace Market Theatre, along with the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham, providing the East Midlands with a top quality indoor sports, entertainment and conference venue right in the heart of the  Lace Market.

From where to go and what to see, here's the fabulous nightlife in the Lace Market and the history and heritage of Nottingham Lace.
