intu Victoria Centre, Nottingham

intu Victoria Centre is at heart of Nottingham, one of the UK’s most popular city centres

For local people or visitors to the city looking for the best shopping and eating experiences, the newly refurbished intu Victoria has it all – top brands and great restaurants.

With its landmark entrance and popular anchor stores of John Lewis and House of Fraser, intu Victoria Centre is the chosen destination for 24 million shopping visits a year. Its recent £42 million makeover has transformed it into a modern and contemporary retail space that is enticing new brands such Kiko, Swatch and Superdry to the city of Nottingham for the first time.

The new Clockhouse dining quarter is attracting a host of new restaurant names, from Joe’s Kitchen to Thaikhun and generating a new vibrant night-time culture in the city. This investment means intu Victoria Centre now boasts an atmospheric casual dining space with a range restaurants to choose from, extending the opening hours of the centre and attracting people from further for longer.

The future

I’m pretty excited to have been given the task of blogging about what’s cool and what’s not in this new world of eating and drinking in the heart of Nottingham.

Eating my way round the world at intu Victoria Centre

Our re-model and refresh of intu Victoria Centre is now complete and included a full upgrade of the centre and its finishes, including structural changes such as removing staircases and walkways to open up visibility throughout the mall, reconfiguration of space to create enhanced shop frontages, new ceilings, remodelled bulkheads, new flooring materials, lighting and upgraded customer toilet facilities.

The project has delivered a prominent new southern entrance and a two-level catering cluster centred on the Grade II listed clock tower. The new catering cluster boasts some exciting new operators to Nottingham including Coast to Coast, Ed’s Easy Diner, Handmade Burger Company, Tortilla and Thaikhun.

The re-model and refresh of intu Victoria Centre is just the first step in our vision for Nottingham

The masterplan

intu has plans that will extend and upgrade both intu Victoria Centre and intu Broadmarsh, bringing new brands, restaurants and leisure spaces to re-establish Nottingham's status as the top shopping destination in the Midlands

The re-model and refresh of intu Victoria Centre was our first step in the major improvements planned for Nottingham’s two main shopping centres over the next few years. These plans include the redevelopment of intu Broadmarsh and a wider development and extension of intu Victoria Centre for which planning permission was granted on 8 July 2014. 

In June 2015, Nottingham City Council approved plans for the proposed transformation of intu Broadmarsh. The decision reflected the overwhelming support received during public consultation when 90% of those who completed a questionnaire supported intu’s proposals.

The redevelopment of the shopping centre will create a modern destination for customers to shop, eat, relax and socialise throughout the day and evening. In addition, it will create an improved new route through the centre forming a new southern gateway into the city.


Along with our work at intu Victoria Centre, we now have a great opportunity to create something special for Nottingham. We look forward to working together with the Council to move the project forward.

Time's ticking by

At Nottingham’s intu Victoria Centre, intu refurbished the infamous, water-powered Emett Clock after contacting the Rowland Emett Society. Long a place that families would visit, it now reinforces the connection with the centre’s past and the city’s famous son.
