This art gallery is airy and spacious with a wide variety of art. Although the gallery is relatively small it's incredibly easy to while away an hour wandering around.

The library featured a... More

We arrived at the Leeds Art Gallery, more seeking refuge from the typically drizzly English weather than anything else, but had been before and decided it was worth another look. Immediately to our right upon entering was a sign, proclaiming irritatingly casually that the sculpture gallery, which is one of the chief attractions and comprises approximately 40% of the overall...
