What a wonderful gallery! A while history of art is laid out here right up to modern day. I found the sculpture gallery with its copy of the Elgin marbles to be my favourite. A free day out that is well worth it!

This gallery is worth putting your comfy shoes on and having a good walk around. There is do much to see. It is free entry shift is always a bonus. It worth going just for the building itself.

This is a rather good gallery with some great pictures. Yes, it does have painting by Constable and Turner but it's the other rather less well know painters who will surprise you with their works. Go with an open mind and prepare to be delighted.
