So many top paintings, so beautiful a building, and it was free. Combine this with a visit to St George's Hall. Which is only 250 mts away.

There are some lovely marble statues on the ground floor and upstairs are British artists and 16/17 and 18th century artists. Well laid out and the building itself is beautifully designed. Big romans columns outside and even the café has statues in the middle of it. Well worth a visit - admission is free and donations accepted of course..

The Walker has one of the best collections in the country and ranges from Medieval to contemporary - you're bound to find something you like, for example, Rembrandt, Lucian Freud and currently a Titian on long term loan. Great atmosphere, great caff.

Probably the best art collection in the country outside London. Always something fresh to see as well as important pieces from the past.
