Nottingham Castle

Bust - Lord Byron - Poet 1788 - 1824

by Alfred Drury

The Byron family seat was Newstead Abbey just north of the city . This is owned by the City Council and is open to the public.  For lovers of Byron it is well worth a visit.

Byron also lived for a very short while in a house at the top of St. James's Street.  This is a just very short walk from Nottingham Castle. This house is not open to the public.
