A beautiful, historic building in the heart of Nottingham city centre is now on the letting market with Nottingham-based property consultants Bruton Knowles.

The stunning property, currently owned by the Congregational Federation, is an impressive religious facility. A deceptively spacious Victorian church, built in 1863, the building offers a striking main auditorium including an organ built in 1903, large meeting rooms, offices and public areas as well as other characteristic features.

It is situated in the sought-after city centre location on Castle Gate, surrounded by other attractive buildings filled with restaurants, bars, cafes and shops.

Laurie Edwards, who is marketing the property at Bruton Knowles, said: “This is a stunning property with a lot of added intrinsic value. It is beautiful inside and out and really is a must-see to appreciate all that it has to offer.

“There are a number of old and original buildings in the city centre which often go unnoticed. Nottingham as a city has a rich and magical history with unexpected delights around every corner, including this beautifully kept church.”


With 8,000 sq. ft. of space available, the church is very spacious and an internal viewing is highly recommended to understand the scope of the building.

The owners have aspirations that it could remain as a place for faith based-activities, as it is currently being used as a religious centre for meetings and worship, but in the past it has been used to home a bookshop and café. They will also consider alternative uses for the church, such as a bar or restaurant, considering the prime city centre location – so long as the new tenant retains the original features such as the organ and the pews.

Laurie added: “The property is a charming delight waiting to be discovered. It is an exceptional property, especially with everything it has to offer– rare finds like these don’t come on the market that often.”

The property is available to let at £50,000 per annum exclusive on new lease terms which are to be agreed with the potential lessees. It currently falls under use class D1 non-residential institutions, however alternatives such as A1, A3 and D2 will be considered.
