Bromley House Library Nottingham

I have lived in this city all my life, apart from my University years and I never knew about Bromley House Library Nottingham.  I love Nottingham. It is a busy bustling modern city, a place of significant history, full of culture art, literature and music. It is full of amazing sporting heritage and sporting venues and it is green and glorious too.   Visit, visit visit!

I do wax lyrical about Nottingham because it really is a city to be proud of. I thought I knew all its nooks and crannies and certainly all it’s a treasure.

I was wrong.

Why on earth had no one told me about the amazing secret right at the heart of Nottingham City Centre?

Why is Bromley House Library Nottingham so special

Bromley House Library was established 200 years ago and is an independent lending library. It is one of a very few remaining subscription libraries in the country.  It is hidden behind a lovely door on a very modern high street. You would not spot it if you did not know it was there.

The library houses around 40,000 books which are spread over three floors of a Grade II* listed gorgeous Georgian townhouse.

A tour of Bromley House Library

I was so delighted to be offered a tour and I just fell in love with the old world feel of the place and the beautiful reading rooms of Bromley House Library Nottingham.  During 2016 they offer free guided tours lasting around an hour every Wednesday afternoon at 2.30 pm and 4.00 pm.

There is also a stunning beautiful walled garden, one of only two in the city centre. The perfect place to read to take a stroll and clear your head!

Bromley House Library Membership Costs

It is a break from the hectic world to work, relax or read. You need to be a member to use it. Membership costs from April 1st 2016 is £96.00 per year.
I am very tempted, I am starting a course in September that will require a lot of study. Having a beautiful quiet place to study (instead of the corner of my kitchen) would be fabulous.
Bromley House Library Nottingham is well worth a visit.
