Hi guys, in this post, I would love to share with you the most Instagrammable places and photo spots in Nottingham, England. I recently visited Nottingham for a weekend and published this post about the best things to do in the city, so make sure to check it out.
You can read it here: Fun Weekend in Nottingham: things to do and see!
However, in this post, we will focus on the most Instagrammable and photogenic locations in Nottingham. Nottingham is a fun, vibrant university city and it has plenty of amazing spots. I’m sure there are more places, but I will only list the ones I’ve tried or heard of. So without further ado, let’s get started!
This post's overview:
Most Instagrammable places in Nottingham: Nottingham photo locations
Hockley Arts Club
If you can only visit one Instagrammable spot in Nottingham, let it be Hockley! Located in the heart of Nottingham, Hockley Arts club is hiding between two “normal” buildings and is hard to spot, unless you’re specifically looking for it.
Hockley Arts Club is located on multiple floors and the last floor is definitely the prettiest. It definitely reminded me of the Florist in Bristol (Check this post about Bristol’s best Instagram locations), Hockley Arts Club has different designs on each floor.
I loved our food and the cocktails there and I would definitely recommend it (please note that we were there on a press trip from Visit Nottingham, however, all the opinions are my own).
Have you ever tried an authentic Taiwanese Bubble Tea? If you haven’t, I’m telling you that you’re missing out A LOT. I’m a big fan of bubble tea (I became a fan after moving to London) and I even created a guide to the best bubble tea places in London (read it here).
However, I must say that bubble tea in Nottingham is great too! Marucha is an authentic place and it’s really really pretty inside. I love the boba tea from there, so I definitely recommend this spot.

Wollaton Hall and Park
One of the best photography spots in Nottingham is the Wollaton Park. There are deer walking around there (in a special section) and if you bring a good zoom lens, you can take some incredible shots, especially in Autumn. As we visited Nottingham in May, it was also very nice, green and pretty and I took a lot of photos in Wollaton Park.
Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem
Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem is one of the oldest pubs in the UK and it’s very pretty from the outside. You can take a couple of photos there (both inside and outside are beautiful) while having a pint there.
Robin Hood statue
Okay, this isn’t entirely unexpected, is it? Nottingham is partially famous because of the legends about Robin Hood (check this tour if you’re interested in Robin Hood and whether he was real or not), and there’s a statue of him in front of the Nottingham Castle. It’s a hot spot for photos in Nottingham, so during the busy times, you might need to queue.

Nottingham Lace Market
Nottingham was a heart of textile production in England and it was especially famous for its lace for years! The lace market is a complex of buildings in one style and it’s definitely worth visiting. It’s located very close to the city centre, so you don’t even have to walk a lot.
