The building will reopen in 2017. The beautiful Tiled Hall cafe will remain open to visitors whilst these works take place as will the Gallery shop.

Really good!!

There are some absolutely amazing pieces of artwork in here and definitely worth a visit. It has been closed for some time for renovations though which is a shame.

Good to see carefully curated exhibition last month. Good cafe and shop. Relaxing ambiance. We had an hour and a half but could have been there much longer.

The Leeds Art gallery is currently closed, apparently for much needs repairs to the roof. We were abel to walk about the lower floors and visit the rather overpriced gift store, which is trying to attract customers despite the closure of the gallery. The tea room has interesting architecture but the items on offer did not look at all appetising,... More

If you're looking for an unusual gift or maybe something for yourself then this is a good place to start. Lots of one-off pieces from a host of different designers to suit almost any taste.

My son (10) and I visited on Tuesday morning. I was sad to find the gallery shut but I understand that repairs must be made. Any how, I was pleasantly surprised to find some lovely women in a small gallery who asked us to draw on the floor! My son and I spent some time potting a plant and drawing... More

We have visited this art gallery several times and always enjoyed the visit. This time during our trip to Leeds we were disappointed to find that it was closed. The gentleman on the desk informed us that it is undergoing major work to the roof and they expect to reopen again in October 2017.
