With it’s links to the legend of Robin Hood, the Lace industry (Hence the Lace Market name), Nottingham is full of history and culture and what better way to spend your lockdown daily exercise – on foot or bike – than exploring the most Instagrammable locations around Lace Market Studios.
When we aren’t in a lockdown Cobden Chambers are full of creative businesses selling vintage items, boutique fashion and jewellery to name a few. Plus, a load of tasty street food vendors.
During lockdown, there’s a unique opportunity to take some edgy urban photography in the empty courtyard and of the Victorian buildings with no one around.
The Chambers are just a 5-minute walk from Lace Market Studios and are located on Pelham Street. Click here for the walking route from Lace Market.

Nottingham Castle & Castle Road.
Nottingham Castle and Castle Road are just a 15-minute walk from Lace Market Studios and puts your right into the most Instagrammable of Nottingham locations, from the Robin Hood Statue to the Castle Walls and Grounds and all the cobbled streets that lead away from the Castle grounds.
