I am biased about St Mary's Church. My eldest was Christened here. It's not huge but it is exceptionally pretty. And they let me use my mums old pudding bowl instead of the font and we played Django Reignheart and Steffan Grappelli. So even though it's a traditional church in a pretty part of Nottingham's old lace market (in name... More

The church is located within the Lace Market area of Nottingham, surrounded by beautiful old buildings of their own historical standing. The church is opened to the public for free and hosts many a concert of classical music in the evenings. There are postcards and leaflets about the history and architecture of the church that can be bought inside for... More

We met such a friendly guy in there who was interesting and down to earth. The church itself was beautiful, photography is welcomed and there is lots of interest. We're pleased we chose to go in.

St Mary's, is in the middle of town and yet has a fantastic feel of peace and sanctuary, on entering. The stained glass windows are absolutely beautiful. On a wander around the churchyard you'd hardly know that the city centre is only a few hundred yards away.

We happened to be there when one of the staff was happy to take us round, and explained the ancient banners and the architectural changes. I love this church and the concerts here are wonderful.

St Mary's church is elegant and finely restored. It is amusing to walk around and find traces of history, such as the indoor black wall that was the external perimeter in the industrial Nottingham. I loved hearing the choir during the Sunday afternoon service, magic with the dimmed light.

When you walk the grounds of this church there is no mistake that you are walking on history. The church is a prominent structure in the area. You are immediately drawn to it, even if you had not intended to make this your destination which was in fact my case. I could not help myself- the architecture is truly magnetic.... More
