Watson Fothergill Walk

Fothergill Watson / Watson Fothergill – Two Names, One Architect

A guided walking tour of Watson Fothergill’s buildings in Nottingham.

“This tour combines some extremely well researched material with an engaging and lively delivery. It’s made me look at Nottingham city centre in a completely new light!”

“The buildings and locations were varied and easily accessed on foot. The history of Watson Fothergill’s life and career was very interesting and described in an informative and professional manner. The walk was just the right length and time, and ended at the pub was perfect. There was a chance to discuss the buildings with others in the group and ask questions of the guide. The handout was great to take away with more information to be accessed.”

A guided walk around the buildings of architect Watson Fothergill in Nottingham City Centre. Learn about the buildings of one of Nottingham’s most prominent Victorian architects, his signature style and the influence of the Gothic on the city’s buildings. A walk of approximately 3km (1.86 miles). There will be the opportunity for refreshments at the end of the walk.

“Charisma and humour from the guide. She also gave a lot of historical info without ever being dry or boring.”
