About the Creative Quarter

The Creative Quarter area is a hotbed of culture and has long been home to creativity and entrepreneurship – from its history at the centre of the lacemaking industry to Ibuprofen being discovered in the buildings that are now home to BioCity, the UK’s largest bioscience incubation centre.

The businesses in the Creative Quarter area are now drawing on that legacy to reinvent enterprise, innovation and manufacturing for the 21st century, helping to shape the future of Nottingham. The area is centred around the historic Lace Market, lively Hockley and up-and-coming Sneinton Market, as well as BioCity, located on Pennyfoot Street.
