Wonderful Walker
Oct 2021 • Couples
A truly fantastic visit to a very good gallery. Not the largest by any means. However, just really good.

Nicely laid out with an interesting and somewhat eclectic mix of art. Great to have had an opportunity to visit.

Magnificent collection
Oct 2021
Drops a star for the uninspiring shop (could do with more stuff related to the collection, rather than generic souvenirs and greetings cards), but otherwise a fantastic place to visit. The sculpture and decorative arts were an unexpected pleasure, as we'd gone mainly for the paintings. Nicely laid out, nicely spaced, great use of the building. Very much worth a visit.

Fantastic exhibition
Sep 2021
The Walter Sickert exhibition is not to be missed! The art gallery have put together a great exposition of Sickert’s life and work with his most important pieces together with some of his contemporaries. Well spaced out so you don’t feel crowded and a very pleasant experience. On top of that, the rest of the gallery is worth your time, as always

A lovely gallery.
Jul 2021
This is a lovely (yet small) gallery, filled with paintings and statues, mostly classic, but also some modern ones.
An hour is more than enough to explore the gallery in its entirety.
