Loved walking around the gallery and seeing so many pictures which can be recognised as used on cards and posters over the years. Some superb art work from down the years. Just spending half and hour walking round lifts the spirits. Liverpoodlians are very lucky...More

Not only is this a very nice, impeccably laid out gallery with a great collection, the cafe on the ground floor sells the most delicious bowls of scouse - if you haven't tried scouse before, try it here.

This museum is just a stone's throw from Lime Street station in William Brown Street which is packed with museums, galleries and libraries. It has been dubbed the National Gallery of the North, and rightly so, because it has such a wonderful collection of art...More

The gallery is well worth a visit for its standing exhibits and its special exibitions. The Singh sisters exhibition was very informative containing art combined with social comment.

Good examples of the works of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Well worth a visit if you are in Liverpool.

And I don’t really know if I mean that in a good way - it’s mixed as in I didn’t get a feeling of consistency in the works nor in the galleries themselves. The small Impressionist gallery must be about the gloomiest I’ve ever seen...More
