Here at Exeid, we are privileged to be the custodians of several notable buildings that feature in Nottingham’s local history. Given the significance of these buildings (as well as their excellent facilities and location for office space), we have decided to share some information on each of our buildings in a way we hope you will find both interesting and informative. Several of the buildings we manage in Nottingham are at adjacent addresses on Castle Gate, so it seems fitting to begin with some history of this ancient street and its long connection with Nottingham’s history.
