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.

‘This Nottingham guide lives up to the high standards set by the rest of the series…The volume is full of new and fascinating insights on the architectural history of this ancient but vibrant city…Excellent and well-illustrated book.’ — Nicholas Doggett, Context, March 2010
