Industrial buildings and narrow alleyways engulf Nottingham, this tiny city has a mix of history, beauty and art.
Arriving into Nottingham in the early morning I set out to find a coffee shop before I started my exploration. A few metres up the hill I spotted Cartwheel, a small coffee shop that had a great selection on their menu, I couldn’t resist so I ordered myself the cult classic avocado on toast with, of course, a coffee.
Situated close by is the Nottingham Contemporary Museum, a modern building with heritage detailing, lace is imprinted on the concrete facade as the city was once known for its lace trace.
The museum has a great selection of exhibitions, my favourite in particular being the visually appealing botanical installation.
After my gander around the gallery, I headed into the town centre which has a great selection of modern, lifestyle shops to offer.
The morning of the second day was delightfully light with not one cloud in the sky. I relaxed in my apartment for a while before I headed out. I had been told to check out a coffee shop called Outpost as they roast their coffee beans locally. Upon arrival, I set up my laptop and worked for several hours; a great workspace and, of course, great coffee.
