Very pleasant place to spend a few hours eating & then viewing art while enjoying beautiful views or a stroll in the grounds enjoying the views.

“Wallace Art Centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Have visited the beautiful grounds and art centre several times and it is a great place to visit. The displays change often. We saw an amazing sculpture display by Terry Stringer and just recently the Wallace art awards. A wonderful display of high quality art all very different.
Cafe is great and there is free parking. Entry by donation/Koha.

“Worth regular visits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Have visited the Arts Centre a number of times as the regular changes of exhibitions means there is always something new to see. The other thing that makes it different is that it is mainly one man's collection of what he likes and doesn't like and can be very eclectic. This means it doesn't have the same atmosphere as a curated art gallery where items may be there because of an artist's name or current fashions. This also means you are bound to see something you love and something you dislike - it becomes a more personal viewing experience.
