“Great little gallery with wide variety of art available”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

Visited the day after the tour de France came through the town, almost as an excuse to do something none bicycle related, and it was a lovely diversion for an hour.
Friendly welcome from knowledgeable staff, who are also a couple of the wide variety of artists. There's a good range of products available to buy from little trinkets to large works of hand made art and much in between. Nice range of drinks and snacks available too. Despite the town being thronged by hoards of extra visitors in for the tdF, the staff took time out for a chat.
Park in the Dales country museum car park opposite (pay & display). Gallery is up a flights of stairs; no lift.

Thanks for the review.

We're glad you enjoyed the visit - Tour De France was an amazing weekend up here and it was nice to meet so many people who travelled here.

Hope to see you again soon.

“An experience that's worth the trip North”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

I have visited the gallery on many occasions and I have seen it develop into a great place with lots of character and great people and a total great experience. Well worth a visit, great products at great prices, supporting the local artists of North Yorkshire

“something for everyone - and every purse!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Chapel Gallery is a great place to wander round and find interesting pieces that you won't find elsewhere. Anne, the owner, is a talented artist in many fields but is always approachable and open to giving advice on presents for different occasions or how to develop a project of your own. I have also done some of her workshops which she runs throughout the year - great fun and you leave with a great sense of achievement and some glass/needlework pieces. A real find on a day out.
