Nottingham Christmas Market is one of the biggest Christmas markets in the UK and is known locally as the Nottingham Winter Wonderland. It is held from mid-November until the 24th December at the Old Market Square and Long Row. This is the historic centre of Nottingham and if you are searching for hotels near Nottingham Christmas Market we suggest staying in this area or in The Lace Market district.
Nottingham Winter Wonderland is a traditional German style market with all the wonderful Christmas food, mulled wine, handmade gifts and decorations that you would expect to see in a German Christmas market.
Hotels near Nottingham Christmas Market
While it’s convenient to stay close to the festive streets and the Christmas market, staying in The Lace Market will allow you to experience one of the most historic and culturally significant districts in Nottingham.
Once at the heart of the British lace industry, The Lace Market is now home to converted Victorian redbrick buildings that are now popular gastropubs, independent stores, art galleries, coffee roasteries and bakeries. I highly recommend staying in this area if you can.

While I normally try to avoid chain hotels, the Ibis Nottingham is extremely well-located, half between the Christmas market and the Lace Market.
