St Barnabus Cathedral

St. Barnabas is a beautiful Church designed by Pugin in the heart of the city of Nottingham, completed in 1844 and becoming the Cathedral in 1850.

It is open all day, every day, for people to visit, worship and pray.

The Cathedral Hall is popular for meetings and social events and we are also very proud of our musical tradition here.

Thrumpton Hall

Thrumpton Hall has a remarkable history that reaches back into the 16th century, when it belonged to the Powdrills, a Roman Catholic family who lost their home and lands through their involvement in the regicidal Babington Plot. (The plot was led by their young neighbour, Anthony Babington, who owned the Kingston on Soar estate.)

Remains of the ancient Powdrill house can still be seen in the wall timbers, a Priest's hiding hole and a secret staircase, leading up to what was the Powdrill family chapel.

William Booth Birthplace Museum

Number 12 Notintone Place is the house where William Booth was born on 10 April 1829. The plan of Nottingham of 1827 (immediately on the right as you enter the museum) shows the three houses standing independently as they do today. In the 1830s they became part of a terrace of three-storey houses, which were eventually demolished in the city redevelopment schemes of the late 1960s.

The three original houses, numbers 10,12 and 14, were retained and restored and the site around developed by The Salvation Army to include an elderly persons' home and a goodwill community centre, thus becoming a living memorial to the life and work of William Booth, Founder and first General of The Salvation Army.
