The gates were close well before 3pm on Saturday, despite the notice confirmed the standard hours as per description. Evidently they don't bother about tourists, well don't waste your time and go to much better sightseeings (E.g., wollaton park)

Always pop into an old church and this was special. Its the home the famous St Mary's choir who appear at Westminster Abbey. Also of the even more famous: "The Orchestra of the Restoration" which I had heard many times before. - all this I was told as I was guided round the church by one of the wardens.

The web-site, and the notice board by the gate. both state that the church is "normally" open from 10 am. However, we tried twice on a lovely summer Saturday to visit this church, but the churchyard gates were securely padlocked, despite the big "Welcome" signs. We have tried on previous visits to Nottingham to see inside this church but have... More

I am not a christian, so I can't say anything about the religious or spiritual side of it. I have visited to see the christmas carol service in the past, but I won't go again. The gorgeous old pews have all gone and now there are just rows of boring modern chairs. This has ruined the looks of the place,... More

This church is right in the middle of town, but is a friendly and anaccessible place of worship. It also has a very nice adjoining coffee shop. The Verger is very welcoming and you never feel out of place just popping whilst visiting the Town.

I attended St Mary's Church recently to watch a Television Workshop production of The Roses of Eyam. My previous visit had been for a friend's funeral so I visited with some trepidation. The beautiful and historic church proved to be a perfect venue for a true, yet tragic, event that occurred during the outbreak of the bubonic plague in 1665.... More

I've just come back from one of my rare visits to church, but I feel totally uplifted. This is a beautiful old church from the 1400s. You can still see some of the floor stonework and more amazingly the stained glass, most of which was destroyed by the English talabanistic Puritans in the English civil war. So you can compare...

Having rediscovered my faith. I have started to attend church. Not one , not two but three church’s in total. All not at the same time. This church I come sometimes on a Thursday morning at 8.30 for Communion. It can be daunting if there are just you and another person taking communion in a small room to the right... More

Love this church, it is worth a visit. Good location on the city centre. I recommend it. Small garden with benches, where you can enjoy a coffee
