Always love visiting this wonderful art gallery. The Downton Collection earlier this year was of particular great interest. This place has such a lovely feel about it and is well presented. Will be back again.

Maybe you can consider this the other side of the Walker Gallery in Liverpool. This has one of the greatest collections of Victorian-era art in the British Isles. Take your time, and enjoy!

The art gallery is free to enter with some very interesting exhibits and paintings it is open from 10 am. Some of the rooms were a little dark but it was worth the visit.

We took our granddaughter to this art gallery and were pleasantly surprised at how rewarding and welcoming it is for children. We were a little apprehensive at taking her as she is only 5 years old, but the staff who run the gallery went out of their way to be as helpful and informative as possible. They had a host... More
