This has to be one of the best art galleries in the UK, it is constantly excellent. It is free to get in, although the Pre-Raphaelite exhibition will cost you a fiver. Pay it! It's worth every penny. There are paintings on display here that will bring you to your knees! An astonishing exhibition, in a world class gallery. We... More

I'd forgotten what a superb collection this place holds. Pre Raphaelite works in abundance. Love the Dante and Beatrice works. Saw the PRB exhibition which only opened today - superb, if a little cramped and spoiled by school group.

The Walker gallery is in a beautiful building. What is great about it is that it isn't too big. It has paintings from different eras alongside furniture and artifacts so is very accessible.

This gallery has a little bit of everything. Sculpture, paintings, fashion from the old to the new. There are gems from famous artists and paintings you'll recognise alongside beautiful works you've never seen before. Interesting descriptions support the work.

I frequently visit this art gallery by myself and with family. Its lovely to wander round and get lost in art for a bit. The collection is diverse and interesting with something to suit everyone's tastes. The cafe is also very pleasant

A lovely building which is always worth popping into if you are in Liverpool. I didn’t have time to get round all of it as there are 15 galleries but enjoyed what I saw. There are lots of sculptures on the ground floor to have a browse around. It was interesting to see the exhibition of British Art from 1880-1950.... More
