Regional art galleries are so often hidden gems and NERAM even more so. A major exhibition by Elizabeth Cummings was on, but it was another textiles and fabric display that really caught my eye. And afterwards a quality coffee in the courtyard cafe.

A place with a nice feel. Well presented and quality art work most times. The Cafe leaves quite a bit to be desired. Very few quality food choices. Little for those who need GF, DF and milk alternatives. Service not over friendly.
