I visited here with my husband. I love to go and see inside churches. St Mary's is very big and beautiful. There are some very beautiful stained glass windows to look at. Not a great deal of information within the church to tell you what is what, but just looking around you soon get to know how old the church... More

I would be a beautiful church in Nottingham. I visited while it was under constuction, for repairing, I think. There was also a chruch-like resteraunt nearby, larger and also beautiful. However, considering most people arrived UK in London, the royality related churches made this one not so surprising. There was at least one thing special, that the Robin Hood was... More

Impressive church, especially if you take time to study the minor details. Lots of symbols and imagery to behold. I went there to make a video and take photos but I suspect this church is at its best when you just want to sit and contemplate, especially if the sun is shining through those awesome stained glass windows.

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
