Well worth a visit. Especially on a rainy day to pass an hour or so. Some really interesting paintings. There was a small cafe which we didn't visit but menu sounded lovely. You have to visit the toilets!!!

This gallery is worth visiting as it is free and has a few interesting pieces. My wife and I did think that the pieces could have been curated in a more coherent way.

A wonderfully wide ranging display of pictures, sculptures and videos displayed attractively in galleries both old and new. A good central location - ideal for a wet day

Love to walk around here for a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. There are alway interesting exhibits. Often there is an audiovisual exhibit upstairs. The cafe downstairs is a lovely place for breakfast, lunch or just coffee and cake.

This is a very nice art gallery, admission is free and there are some very beautiful paintings. But after a while it gets a bit boring, most of the paintings are just the same thing over and over again. Never the less, the exhibition that...More
