Great place to chill out and see the wonders on display. Burrell certainly had an eye for the finer things and this free to view collection is fantastic.

Unique collection, presented in a very open way. Bad weather, so hardly anybody in. No objections of taking photos. Will be back with good weather and when the upper floor is open again.

Parking was... More
