Welcome to Lace Market Centre

Lace Market Centre

Nottingham's Lace Market Centre is situated in the heart of a protected heritage area of the city, which has undergone exciting regeneration in recent years; the old Victorian warehouses in the area have been turned into stylish residential units and trendy bars or restaurants. Once a thriving local industry, lace was manufactured on a large scale in Nottingham after the invention of the framework machine in 1589. At the Lace Market Centre visitors can find out all about lace-making and its impact through a series of exhibitions, demonstrations, and audio-visual presentations. There is also a lace shop and coffee bar at the centre.
