Summer Stays in Nottingham


Spring has sprung, the clocks have moved forward and the Easter bunny has been. Which can only mean one thing; summer is on it’s way! And here at Lace Market Studios, we think it’s never too early to start thinking about summer and your summer break.

As you get your head down for the final weeks of term and prepare for those end of year exams,  that summer wardrobe, ice-creams and the nice long summer break are almost in touching distance. And although revision and exams might make it seem like a life time away, we can guarantee summer will be here before you know it. So, it’s time to get planning.

If you’re in the UK over the summer months, why not spend some time in the beautiful city of Nottingham in the England’s Midlands region? A thriving and creative city, packed with culture and history – and the home of the legendary Robin Hood, Nottingham is well worth exploring this summer.

Here you’ll find a pool table, table tennis, fuss ball, a PS4 and a projector for watching movies. And with prices from less than £23 per night for student (minimum stay of 1 week), you can enjoy affordable city centre living this summer.

Where to go for a day trip to the seaside from Nottingham


The sun’s shining, the air is warm and summer is in full swing. And what better way to spend a beautiful summers day than at the beach. Ok, so you won’t find the sea front in Nottingham, but within just a couple of hours you’ll be walking along the sandy beaches and taking in the fresh sea air. So, dig out your flip flops and grab your bucket and spade. Here are 3 seaside locations well worth a visit:

Skegness is one of the UK’s premier seaside resorts and best known as the location of the first Butlins holiday resort. Located on the Lincolnshire coast, and boasting a Blue Flag Central Beach it’s the perfect place to relax on a sunny day. When it gets too hot, cool off in the sea or take advantage of one of the many indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Distance from Lace Market Studios = 1 hr 57 mins.

Also located on the Lincolnshire coast, is Mablethorpe; a small seaside town with a beautiful sandy award-winning beach. But there’s more to the town than just sand. Famous for its amusement arcades, you’ll be entertained for hours. And what beach would be complete without donkeys and a sand train? You’ll find it all in Mablethorpe. Distance from Lace Market Studios = 2 hrs.

Blackpool; where do we start? From Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Blackpool Tower, to Madame Tussauds and Sea Life centre, you’ll find it all in Blackpool. And if that wasn’t enough to keep you entertained, then how about a waterpark, a zoo and 3 piers (South, North and Central Pier)? And after all that, take a breather and relax on the beach! Distance from Lace Market Studios = 2 hrs 37 mins.
