Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow

The main reason I wanted to visit Glasgow last October was to go to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and it turned out to be an even better experience than I’d been expecting, in fact I ended up spending most of the day there. The building itself is beautiful inside and out, designed in a Spanish Baroque style in red sandstone by John W. Simpson and E. J. Milner Allen and opened in 1901.

St Mary-le-Bow Church, London

A church has probably been on the site of St Mary-le-Bow since Saxon times but the present building was one of the first churches to be rebuilt after the Great Fire of London by Christopher Wren. According to tradition you have to have been born within the sound of the bells of Mary-le-Bow to be considered a true Cockney.

St Mary-at-Hill Church, London

St Mary-at-Hill was one of those churches I decided to pop in and visit while I was wandering around the Billingsgate area of London. The entrance is hidden away down a narrow street, handily marked by the sign below, and is far bigger inside than I’d been expecting.

St Helen’s Bishopsgate

After visiting St Andrew Undershaft I moved on to the nearby St Helen’s Bishopsgate. There was already a tour in progress when I arrived and as I’d already diverted from my original plan by some hours I decided to just wander around on my own taking photos.

St Martin-in-the-Fields Church, London

St Martin-in-the-Fields stands at the north east corner of Trafalgar Square and as such is a building I’ve passed by plenty of times but never had the time to pop in until this last visit when I deliberately added it to my places to see. There’s been a church on the site since at least 1222 but the current building dates from 1722-1726.

The Albert Hall, Nottingham

The Albert Hall is a conference centre and concert venue next to St Barnabas Cathedral. The original building was used as a Temperance Hall which had been designed by Watson Fothergill. It was the largest concert hall in Nottingham but was largely destroyed by fire in 1906. The current building was built on the site in 1909 designed by Albert Edward Lambert designed in the style of an Edwardian Music Hall.

The Parish Church of St. Mary Magdalene, Newark

While visiting Newark the impressive spire of St. Mary Magdalene Church caught my eye and I decided to take a closer look. It’s apparently one of the largest parish churches in the country, and it certainly proved larger than I was expecting when I stepped inside.

St. Peter’s Church, Nottingham

I decided late last year that it was about time I paid a visit to St. Peter’s Church which is right in the centre of Nottingham, and which I’ve never set foot in before. It is one of three churches in Nottingham that dates from the Middle Ages, with St. Mary’s being another.

Witley Parish Church

Although Witley Parish Church is adjacent to Witley Court, the church is separate and does not receive any aid from English Heritage. It is, however, an absolute must-see if you are intending to visit the Court. It doesn’t look very impressive from the outside, but the inside is nothing short of breathtaking. I had been told that it was beautiful, but nothing had quite prepared me for the reality.
