A very interesting gallery with different exhibitions each time we have visited. Lift to the upper floor. Good cafe and shop. Well worth a visit. Hidden away near the lawn tennis club

Visited gallery expecting to see good exhibitions. Main gallery shut until end of May and the other exhibition on was meaningless and had nothing worth looking at! Basically just empty rooms. Very disappointing.

We stayed at a homtel that may be out of your price range. It was the "Big Sleep Hotel", close to the pier and overlooking the sea. We loved it.
