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

Lovely Art Gallery, very useful and informative audio hand set. Spaces made to display work done by children from different high schools, framed very nicely and labelled with the child's name. This gallery is free and so to is the hand set. Very much worth a visit.

Beautiful building and wonderful collection of art particularly the later Pre-Raphaelites although a number were not on display due to refurbishments. Definitely worth a visit.

Absolutely excellent gallery. Truly wonderful. Showing the history of the area in excellent detail and the staff more than happy to assist with any queries. Perfect for a solo or couple visit, whilst also ideal for those still in school. A definite must visit.
