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

We visit this church regularly and always seem to see something we have not noticed on previous visits. The windows are stunning and the church so calm and relaxing. On our last visit a student was practising on the organ and although we received an apology for the noise, it was in fact lovely and enhanced our usual visit.

A thousand years of worship has hallowed the site and warm and friendly reception awaits visitors to this ancient city church. The stained glass is particularly impressive as are the many medieval artefacts.

I really like visiting this church. It's beautiful and very peaceful. I always like to sit and pray for a while whenever I visit. You're left alone too for this and whilst you're looking around.

Substantial, grand and red, St Mary's stands somewhat apart from the bustle of Nottingham in one of the older, more historic quarters. Fine interior with plenty of interest. Main problem is access. the church is invariably locked!
