About the Canal District

Venice… Amsterdam… Bruges… OK, Nottingham may not be defined by its canal system to the same extent as some other cities, but the waterways played a vital part in shaping its fortunes. During the industrial revolution, the canal was an integral part of the lace and tobacco trades – providing a valuable route for transporting goods in and our of the city.

In the past twenty years, the near-derelict Nottingham and Beeston Canal has been transformed into a pleasant haven for walkers, cyclists, wildlife and most importantly, drinkers. The towpath serves as a useful navigational route, though most of the NottsNight pubs featured her are best negotiated along Canal Street, before walking along the recently refurbished Carrington Street and onto Nottingham Station.

Along with those venue or our list, you’ll also find an array of cafes and craft beer outlets that have sprung up over the past couple of years. In fact, you could easily spend a whole afternoon and evening in this area and never be short of a pint.
