A lively, authoritative and practical guide to the buildings of Nottingham, from its medieval beginnings to the innovative architecture of the 21st century. Outstanding buildings range from the famous Castle, a Baroque palace on an unforgettable cliff-top site, to the internationally important 1930s complex for Boots at Beeston. A rich legacy also remains from Nottingham’s Georgian and Victorian prosperity, explored here in a series of walks around the regenerated city centre and its distinctive and varied inner suburbs.

 

Illustrated throughout in colour with specially commissioned photographs, augmented by a wealth of maps and historic views, Nottingham is at once the indispensible visitor’s companion and an essential reference work.

 

Elain Harwood is a historian with English Heritage and native of Nottinghamshire.
