The art exhibited downstairs... More

It is a lovely place to sit and look out to the smart gardens with their metal sculptures. We have also been there to have a light lunch. A jacket potato with a choice of fillings... More

There are some truly beautiful pieces of art in this museum. The detail iof the pieces is absolutely amazing. Such a beautiful setting, we had lunch in the tea room which was very reasonable. Lunch was very nice and served very quickly. All staff very friendly and helpful, really enjoyed our visit.

Just outside Gloucester City is where you'll find this lovely venue. They run art based activities for all ages. Activities are varied, not exactly cheap, but in my opinion well worth it!
