Best thing in the Newlyn Gallery is the door out! £3 down the drain to get in, and it takes about two minutes to view everything and realise there's nothing of any taste, skill, or interest. Diabolically dismal.

Right on the sea with fabulous views from the coffee shop. The Rose Wylie exhibition was showing. Lots of subtle messages in her work. Brought plenty of smiles to the group’s faces. Art appeals on so many levels. All out tastes are different, that’s what...More

Always enjoyable to visit this gallery on the sea front, even if some of the art is not to my taste, as I do not understand a lot of modern art. But interesting to see what others deem to be art.

We always enjoy outings to the Newlyn Gallery as it is manageable for new or experienced art gallery visitors. As it's small you get a wonderful flavour of an artist that even those protesting a visit will appreciate. Then there is always the excellent cafe...More

Clearly the people in charge aren't familiar with the story of the emperor's New clothes or they didn't learn its moral. The upstairs gallery displayed what at first I thought was brilliant... for a toddler. Any message the picture told was not at all portrayed...More

Walked from Penzance specifically to visit and was totally disappointed. There were so few exhibits, not at all as it appears from their publicity material. Also it says it is dog friendly, it is not, I was paying and the woman taking the money said...More

This gallery sits just behind the sea front and is accessible from the Newlyn/Penzance promenade. Well worth the detour as this is as hidden gem of a gallery. Light, airy building showing off the art in wonderful light. Don't leave without stopping for coffee upstairs...More

Lovely building, and very pleasant staff but, oh dear, what a disappointment the art is. I had hoped for a celebration of local artists which considering the area, should have been easily managed. I know art is a very individual preference but I felt there...More
