Lace Market

Hotels near Lace Market, Nottingham, United Kingdom .

The Lace Market district of central Nottingham has a history that predates the Norman
invasion, but its true glory days began during the Victorian era when the production of
lace was its primary focus. This central neighborhood was the site of the original Saxon
settlement that grew to be the modern city of Nottingham with a population of nearly
300,000. It was during the 18th century that this primarily residential area was
transformed into a commercial center, but after the invention of machinated lace making
in 1808, the area blossomed into a manufacturing hub of over 130 factories. Despite the
demand for lace falling from the time of the neighborhood's 19th century heyday, the
district continues to be known for its place in the world of fashion as it contains many
small boutiques as well as prominent designers' shops. This trendy area with its
Victorian architecture contains many luxury apartments as well as office space and
academic buildings, but despite the high-end side of this district, hotels can be found for
as low as 30 GBP per night. For visitors looking for reminders of the district's past, there
still remain some of the old lace factories, though they are now run with the aid of
computers.
