More often than not the best things in life take a bit longer to discover, and it is certainly something to keep in mind when getting to know a city. While Nottingham is splendidly compact to get around, if you roam a little beyond the bustle of the main city streets you’ll find a true taste of Nottingham’s character. Hiding within retro shopping arcades, peaceful courtyards, inconspicuous alleys (or twitchells if you want to learn the local dialect!) there is a spectacular array of niche, independent businesses all ripe for discovery.
These ventures are lovingly began by locals, who hold a true passion and knowledge of their trade.
