Explore Nottingham this Summer
If you are a cultural magpie who loves wandering around galleries, hunting for art and craft supplies, or finding unique handmade treasures, you will have lots to do in the city.
There are a few gems within the cinematic streets of The Lace Market, the most notable being Nottingham Contemporary, a free modern art gallery with a constantly inventive exhibition programme.
A short walk away you have Fletcher Gate Art Gallery which deals in fine art and Debbie Bryan, a tea room, studio and shop displaying artisan crafts and local heritage items. Craft lovers will know that a rainy day is the perfect chance to get stuck into a craft project, making their monthly Crafternoons an ideal choice. Another top choice, over in the delightful Flying Horse Arcade for a browse is George Thornton Art who specialise in contemporary and affordable modern art to give a dash of stylish character to your home.
If you take a wander slightly off the beaten track and explore Derby Road you’ll also find some great independent shops and galleries. Swing via The Nottingham Society of Artists – a collective which has been in existence for over 130 years – then up to Hung Up, who specialise in urban street art and prints. Next stop is Focus Gallery who not only have a great array of jewellery, gifts, and trinkets, but also provide classes and workshops.
