Fantastic gallery well worth a visit
Aug 2020 • Couples
Having been to both galleries on an occasional basis over the last couple of years. I spotted on line a picture I thought I might like to buy. They didn’t have it in either gallery because it was being shown elsewhere however they offered to get it in ASAP. They kept me up to date on when it would be in and we visited on Saturday to have a look at it. I wanted to see it in and out of the frame which they happily actioed whilst we grabbed a coffee.
Even more impressed with the picture now I have it home than I was in the gallery. Great gallery, great staff, good communication. Highly recommended.

Judgemental

I've purchased artworks from the Folkestone branch of this gallery and been very pleased with the service.
Unfortunately, at this branch, a rather pompous man seems to decide if you are worthy of his attention or not. Pity really, because this attitude most certainly lost them a sale.

Hi Susan, I'm very sorry that you felt I didn't want to give you time... I can only say that you must have caught me on a very bad day, most people would say I'm easy to talk to. Anyway, obviously not on this occasion. My apologies again. David

Canterbury’s finest
Jun 2019 • Solo
Lilford Gallery has a branch and a framers in Folkestone but its Canterbury gallery is the heart of its business. And a more eclectic range of modern art would be difficult to imagine with the odd David Hockney and Peter Blake print, contemporary sculpture, urban grime smut and filth, Damien Hirst spots, Anita Klein self-indulgences, drawings by the late punkster Ian Dury, even the occasional Salvador Dali lithograph. It’s spread over two floors both feeling like something of a stage set. All that’s missing is a grand piano and a nightly cabaret show.

Great art, some of it is now on our walls
Jan 2019 • Couples
I believe this gallery has two locations in Canterbury and we seemed to find and buy in both locations. Most of the art is local and in my mind very reasonable. If you are a tourist they are great locations for a meaningful reminder. If you are a local, god bless you for there are larger works that will probably find their way to your house.

We visited the gallery on a whim but ended up buying from here. We found the people approachable and friendly and they had a large selection of pictures for sale. Will be visiting again. Can highly recommend them.

An interesting selection of exquisite art.
Apr 2018 • Solo
Loved the modern contemporary presentation throughout this gallery. The art work is thoughtfully and meticulously placed to accentuate each individual piece.This place struck me particularly with the history behind the Lilford family. I was hoping to meet the owner to see if he knew much of the history and also hoping to get a chance on our stay to view Lilford Hall, which I'm hoping to do on my next visit. Lovely, friendly atmosphere.

Easily the best art gallery in Canterbury
Jan 2018
A fantastic commercial art gallery and easily the best in Canterbury. They have work by emerging artists and by well-known established artists which results in a very interesting mix of styles. Highly recommended!

The most amazing gallery I have ever been to!
Dec 2017 • Solo
I have visited many galleries of every kind in the past. I can honestly say that Lilford Gallery was the most fabulous one! the quality and originality of the items, the variety of techniques and materials and the warmness of the place create an incredible feeling.
I didn't know about the gallery and I got in while walking in the center of the town, as several paintings and sculptures caught my eye. The welcoming behavior of Ingrid, the manager, and her associates, added up to the great atmosphere. No matter if you like classical art, modern art, simplicity or complicated creations, it is certain that there will be something for every friend of the art.
One of the artists was in the gallery at that time and kindly signed a brochure of his creations for me, while the manager allowed me to take some photos, which I gladly share with people here.
keep up the good work, I was impressed!
