Lovely, friendly little gallery with beautiful exhibits by Zandra Rhodes, Andrew Logan and others. Free parking on site. Ideal gift shop for unusual presents - or to treat yourself. Well worth a visit.

We were staying in Painswick and visited the Gallery one day. The lady in there was so friendly and gave us loads of tips for visits to surrounding towns and villages. So nice to meet such friendly helpful people.
