How much do you know about Nottingham? Prepare for surprises as you join Nottinghamshire-born actor Dorothy Atkinson on a walking tour through one of the city’s most vibrant neighbourhoods, meeting many of the people who make it a special place.

In the ancient heart of Nottingham, the city’s great industrial past is inspiring creative new thinking in both culture and commerce. Symbols and stories of lace are threaded through art and architecture, colleges, cafes and shopping centres.

Here you find cutting edge technology alongside museums. Video games and new media mingle with literary greats of the past and music of the here and now. There’s room for heritage and the avant garde in Sneinton Market and the Lace Market is home to one of the UK’s largest contemporary art galleries.

Welcome to the Nottingham Creative Quarter Audio Tour brought to you by the Creative Quarter Company in association with Walking Heads Streetwise Audio Tours. We look forward to exploring with you!
