Byron’s reputation often precedes him, but it was his writing which made him a celebrity.
This year, Newstead Abbey offers the opportunity to explore the writing of Nottingham’s most famous poetic son with trails through the house of Byron’s own words. You can encounter Byron in his different moods, see Newstead and the world through his eyes, and encounter his poetry in ways which will move, amuse and surprise.
