“Definitely worth a visit”

Global Images Gallery
Ranked #8 of 18 things to do in Sherborne

Attraction details
Owner description: Britain's only gallery devoted to Mountaineering and Landscape Photography with almost a thousand square feet of hanging area. There are always two or three themed exhibitions featuring the mountains, landscapes and peoples of all seven continents. These change every four months. The Gallery is open 7 days a week and admission is free of charge. The emphasis and ethos of the gallery is on viewing rather than selling but 10% of all sales goes directly to Third World Projects.

A very quaint and unpretentious gallery with lots of fantastic photographs. Great way to spend an hour or so.

It's not what you'd expect to find in a small market town, but the Global Images gallery takes you from rural Dorset into the Himalaya and the Alps and other high places in - between.

Relaxed atmosphere, no pretentiousness and affordable imagery, ( if you feel like it ), that also donates to a worthy cause.

Well worth a visit.

The gallery is full of superb images. The Himalayan display vividly reminded us of our own trip and has inspired us to do more traveling! The gallery is centrally situated in Sherborne, which is well worth visiting if you haven't been to this beautiful and ancient town before. A real gem.

Stunning images displayed thematically. It was nice to be able to buy a print and take it home straight away unlike many other photographic galleries. Excellent catalogues to remind us of the exhibition.

There was a lot to look at and I really enjoyed the outstanding selection of Mountain images - I am looking forward to the forthcoming exhibitions on Everest and Africa. Great idea to donate some of proceeds to the 3rd world.
