Shopping in Nottingham
|| With 1,330 shops
to choose from including the city’s very own Paul
Smith and plenty of familiar high street names, Nottingham
is one of the best places to go shopping in the UK.
It’s the city’s great combination of shops,
from market stalls to designer outlets and department
stores, which keep pulling the crowd of two million
shoppers every year.
Nottingham has two shopping centres, the Broadmarsh
Centre [map], which has many high street shops
and plenty of children’s activities, and the more
upmarket Victoria Centre [map], where you’ll
find 120 different shops, including House of Fraser,
Jane Norman, Woolworths, Next and Top Shop.
This centre is open seven days a week, with late night
shopping on Wednesday, and has 2,700 covered parking
spaces, which is great when you’re shopping
in the rain.
Attached to the Victoria Centre is the Victoria Market,
which boasts more than 300 stalls selling everything
from food to household goods.
For a more traditional shopping experience, head to Beastmarket
Hill [map] in Old Market Square, which has an array modern shops
hidden behind an original Georgian frontage, or Derby
which is renowned for antiques and specialist shops offering furniture, art and gifts.
If you’re a designer label junkie then a trip to Bridlesmith Gate [map] will keep you busy for hours, as this area is packed to
bursting with top notch fashion retailers. Designer Paul Smith [map] opened his very first shop there on Byard's Lane, and
that has now been joined by the likes of Hobbs and Ted
Alternatively, for gifts and household items head to the
trendy Lace Market district.
