Absolutely loved this gallery! While we were there the Mucha exhibition was on, which was really wonderful, but the permanent collection is well worth a visit. An absolute treasure trove for art lovers frankly, including some great pre raphaelite and medieval art. Paintings by Gainsborough,...More

A must visit location for even a reluctant art lover. The attendants are extremely knowledgeable and incredibly apart from certain exhibitions it’s free
