For any fan of Pre-Raphaelite art this is a must-visit gallery. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and I would also recommend it for any art lover in general. The John Moores Painting Prize is also showcased there and it's a nice opportunity to see some up-and-coming talent on display.

They had a Pre- Raphelite showing which was very good. Lots of statues an art work well worth the journey. Alongside is the museum. Right down town where there is so much to see and do.

Beautiful exterior houses wonderful collection of paintings and sculpture which surpasses any Gallery outside of our National Gallery in London . Thoughtfully laid out the collection includes many masterpieces as well as those of more modern artists I've been visiting and enjoying this gallery for over 50 years.

Lots of rooms to go and view various arts from statues to paintings. Lots of lots and rooms to get lost in or jut site back and look at some fabulous paintings. You can get a guide as you come into the building to help navigate you round the place.

If visiting Liverpool,then remember to put the Walker Art Gallery on your list of must-sees! There is so much wonderful art here and finding your way around it is easy if you follow the galleries sequentially. Staff were very helpful.. Must admit, I'm not a modern art fan but the exhibitions made me think (a bit).

What a wonderful gallery! A while history of art is laid out here right up to modern day. I found the sculpture gallery with its copy of the Elgin marbles to be my favourite. A free day out that is well worth it!

This place is for me the highlight of Liverpool. It is a "traditional" art gallery in all the best senses of the word. It has not sold out and become an interactive multimedia experience, it just does what it does best, displays wonderful art well. Whenever I am in Liverpool I always visit for my fix of the marvellous Pre-... More
