Visited the gallery, mainly to see the building itself as it was the old Town Hall. 2 local artists had exhibitions in there, which were interesting to see. I believe they are regularly updated.

This is a small gallery but it had two really interesting exhibitions. The space is well laid out and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Devoted to 2 artists collections and so I felt the full impact of each individually - not being bombarded with every 'Tom, Dick & Harry'

Fantastic gallery offering, on this occasion, the Harrogate Open. Well ordered, friendly staff and a small shop.

In the area so popped in. An exhibition of local art, glass work and sculpture for sale. As one might expect, some variation in quality, but in general, a pleasing exhibition. A worthwhile visit! Noticed that they have a coffee machine if you need one.
