About the Canal district

Nottingham became world famous for its tobacco and lace products, but many people may never have seen them had it not been for the Nottingham and Beeston Canal. It was a key route for transporting goods to the River Trent and beyond.

Many of the buildings of the old transport industry survive to this day – and a couple of them form part of this area’s pub scene. From a huge beer hall with its own moorings inside to a small old shed – you could easily spend a whole day just in this area.

It’s proximity to Nottingham Station with its train and tram links also make it ideal for visitors from out of town.
