Tucked away in Saffron Walden is the Fry Gallery. It's something from the past and all the more delightful for it. Gems on display. Run entirely by volunteers, we were told, by two of the most welcoming volunteers you could hope to meet... Worth discovering....More

This art collection is one of the best outside London not in a big city. It is varied, full of surprises, very welcoming and free!

Was astounded to walk in and find Ravilious hanging on the walls surrounded by other amazing artists. There is a permanent collection and a temporary exhibition. Staff very welcoming.

It's only small, but within it's parameters, it's superb. Drop in when visiting the Bridge End Gardens PS. try and spot Grayson Perry's "Wh**e of Essex" which is legitimately hiding there. (Tripadvisor has blocked the official name, hence ** !!!)
