The Laing is right in the heart of the city, only a couple of minutes from the main shopping street. Worth a visit. Lovely building with stained glass windows in the coffee shop.

Its a well maintained quiet facility, I felt the art types were all a jumble, rather than being categorized.

visited expecting a way cool gallery but instead got one room only. Most of the rooms were shut - so my advice plan your day and phone before

A decent sized gallery that hosts some nice exhibitions, and has a decent cafe. Small enough that you can do the whole thing in an hour but large enough to attract some very good shows.

Visited the Laing on a day trip to Newcastle. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience particularly a photographic exhibition showing the final days of shipbuilding on the Tyne.

This is a charming gallery with good range of paintings by local artists and showing many local scenes. It is handily located only a short walk from the main city centre shopping area, about 5 minutes from Grey's Monument.

The Laing Art Gallery is a sad reflection of its former self, victim of Newcastle's unrelenting cuts to culture. After the gift shop, crafts shop, conference/wedding room and cafe/restaurant there isnt more room for their wonderful collection. A staircase takes you to a selection of...More
