“Remaining walls”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

There are a few remaining walls of the Greyfriars monastic house and church down an alley off Southgate. It's small and unprepossessing. With the fences around it, it looks rather scruffy. The fencing is see through, so you can see all you need, and the fencing is close to the walls, so you are not kept away, but the impression is not good.

“Vintage Fayre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

Have twice supported vintage Fayre. Beautiful surroundings, beautiful buildings. A wonderful place. Music dancing on the lawn, perfect atmosphere.

“Currently fenced off!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2013

This is the site of the former Greyfriars friary, located behind Eastgate Shopping Centre. It is a reasonably sized ruin, but it is impossible to gain access as entirely fenced off, no doubt for safety reasons.
