Like many other reviews we struggled a) to find it and even the local police couldn’t help us. Finally we found the area but as others said some lovely buildings but “no trace of the lace”. Sad really

Disappointing as I thought we may have seen some lace being made or some exhibitions. The area could have more signs giving information seeing as how this was an important part of Nottinghams history

A lovely area! Great for the whole family to wander around and see the sights. Beautiful old buildings. Some areas are a little hilly so wear comfortable shoes.

I have spent a lot of time in The Lace Market for two reasons – the first being that I used to work there, the second being that it is such an interesting and historical place within the City of Nottingham. The Lace Market is...More
