I had high expectations of visiting here as I expected it to have a lot of galleries however there were hardly any and one of them you had to pay to enter. Yes the building is lovely and some of the works I saw were excellent but the café and visitor experience were also lacking.

I have been to this building more than 5 times and anytime I visit there, I remember Africa. This is one of the best Art Gallery in North East.

Art gallery in central Newcastle with a good selection of local artists. Plenty of interesting local history is depicted in the paintings, and the gallery also has a couple extremely dramatic works by John Martin.

This is a lovely art gallery, some nice sculptures and local made glass and pottery. The paintings are beautiful and if you are interested in art you will love this place.
