I had a piece of carrot cake and a mocha in the cafe which were both very good and readonably priced. I wasn't impressed with the John Moores prize winners ( my cat could have done better) and I...

The first thing that strikes you about the Walker art gallery is the fantastic building that houses the collection. Once inside art lovers won't fail to be impressed by the range of art on offer. Many famous paintings are on display my personal favourite being When did you last see you father? by W.F. Yeames.

Art for all of us- beautiful sculpture and an amazing collection of paintings not to be missed. Three ages of man and death is worth a good look.

There is a wonderful collection of good art here. We opted to use one of their audio guides which led us round all the rooms and informed us about some of their most interesting pieces. The descriptions of the art were not too fanciful and really helped us to learn about the pieces themselves and their creators.

It has some famous names but as usual it is worth browsing and just identifying a picture you like and then looking at the artist. Doing this I took a liking to one... More

I last visited in the 80s and it has really changed since then with a massive refurb recently. The galleries are wonderful with art anging from the dark ages to the 21st century. It has a really nice feel about the place. Well worth a visit.
