Housed in a great Neo-Classical building among among others, including the Picton Library, the World Museum & St George's Hall.The collection is strong on C19th paintings, particularly the Pre-Raphaelites.

This is an Art Gallery that has it all, it is very comfortable, has a café and yes it is also an art gallery. It is a place to spend a couple of hours and you will not feel them slip away.
