This small, fascinating gallery is independent and reached by a flight of ancient worn stone steps. Not sure about lifts etc. Constantly changes so go anytime for great photos and exhibits that provide an insight into some aspect of somebody's life somewhere on the planet.

I was last in the gallery in the late 70s in my student days. I loved it then and wasn't disappointed by my recent visit with some friends. It's small, but has always had interesting and thought-provoking exhibitions. The men on reception were also extremely...More

The Side Gallery is tucked away in an alley near the riverside but is well worth searching out. When we visited there was a fascinating exhibition about shipbuilding and ship repair on the Tyne. Some books for sale on the ground floor. Exhibitions vary.

Having set out to visit and checked where it was I managed to completely miss it the first time and walked right past the alleyway that leads to the entrance. Fortunately I spotted the sign the second time and spent an enjoyable 45 minutes viewing...More

Interesting, small gallery. Nice lady on the desk who gave plenty on information and leaflets. Only spotted this place by chance. Glad we went in! A fab 20/30 minutes was had in this small gallery.
