Nottingham : Michelin's recommendations
Nottingham is famous for its lace, alabaster carvers, DH Lawrence and medieval Sheriff. Originally a Danish settlement called Snotingeham, the city witnessed 19C riots as workers protested against the mechanisation of its industries; unrest in 1831 resulted in fire damage to its castle; those parts that survived are now a museum and art gallery. Centre of the East Midlands region, Nottingham is home to some internationally renowned business names.
