Mother’s Day Heritage Tour 31st March 2019

Debbie Bryan has invited me to run a short walk exploring Nottingham’s Lace Market as part of her programme of Mother’s Day events on Sunday 31st March 2019.

Out and about in the Lace Market looking for Beauty in the Details.

This walk will be a slightly expanded version of the Beauty in the Details walks I offered last year, looking at the architecture and history of this unique part of the city. Tickets come with the choice of cream tea or full afternoon tea. So bring your mum or come along and treat yourself!

Treat your mum to afternoon tea at Debbie Bryan.

You can book over on Debbie Bryan’s website and tickets are £15 (cream tea) and £30 (full afternoon tea). Menus are available with traditional, vegetarian or vegan options and Debbie’s cafe caters for gluten-free options if booked in advance. Meet at Debbie Bryan on St Mary’s Gate for a 1pm start, for a walk and talk of approximately one hour (under 1km on flat paved streets) then return to Debbie Bryan for tea.

Thanks to everyone who came along to the Hine Hike yesterday (17 February) It helped me to test the route and timed the walk. I hope to set more dates for this walk as well as more Watson Fothergill Walks through the Spring and Summer 2019 – watch this space or sign up for the WFW newsletter for updates.

Beauty In The Details: Christmas Edition!

I’m planning to do some more of my short walks in the Lace Market with Debbie Bryan in December. The walk takes place at 2pm on 7th December, with a look at the architecture and history of St Mary’s Gate. These tours will be similar to the Heritage Open Days tours that took place in September but this time will include tea or coffee and a warm mince pie at Debbie Bryan. You will also receive 10% off any other tea room orders on your visit.

Thanks to Katie at Debbie Bryan for the photo.

There will be a look at the Adams Building and other Thomas Chambers Hine work in the area, as well as Watson Fothergill’s Milbie House on Pilcher Gate. The whole thing should take around 45 minutes with time for tea and mince pies (and perhaps some creative Christmas Shopping) afterwards.

If this first one is popular we may add more dates in December.

Tickets are £10 each, available here from Debbie Bryan, or call into her shop on St Mary’s Gate.
