Museums and Art Galleries: City Centre (Lace Market)
Weekday Cross, Nottingham. NG1 2GB • (0115) 948 9750
At over 3,000 square metres, Nottingham Contemporary is one of the largest contemporary art galleries in the UK. It has four galleries, lit by 132 skylights, shop and café bar. The building appears larger on the inside than outside, since much of its north end is sunk into the sandstone cliff.
The site is said to be oldest in the city – it was the site of a Saxon fort, a medieval Town Hall, and finally a late Victorian railway cutting. The steps at the side of the building have recreated a historic right of way.
