As is tradition we visited Nottingham’s Light Night event last Friday and as is also tradition, there just isn’t time to see everything so I planned a route around the city that would work for the time we had available. The only thing we didn’t manage to visit was the Museum of the Moon at the Concert Hall – kudos to everyone who was prepared to stand in the exceptionally long lines to get in, we decided in the end that we were prepared to skip it for other things.

Bromley House Library is in a gorgeous Georgian townhouse on Angel Row in Nottingham that was built in 1752 for George Smith, grandson of the founders of Smiths Bank. I’ve passed the front door a countless amount of times and never noticed it was there. I first heard about it a couple of years ago but it was only this year, when the library is celebrating 200 years of continuous operation that I finally got around to going on one of their free tours.
One day last October I decided to take advantage of the free guided tours that are on offer for the Council House in Nottingham, a building I’d never stepped foot in before.
On a Friday near the end of June I was walking through Nottingham City Centre when the heavens opened jut as I was passing St Mary’s Church. Since I’d never been in before, and thankfully I had my camera with me, I thought it was the perfect chance to explore somewhere new and shelter from the rain at the same time.
