We came across the Brook Gallery in Exeter somewhat by chance on a damp afternoon while on holiday in Exeter. Although interested in art, we are sometimes reluctant to enter galleries as one feels one is expected to show understanding and make appropriate comment. However...More

Vast improvement upon the previous gallery there. Very impressive exhibition, very kind and friendly owner (but not in your face at all), and some gorgeous art. Good price range. Will certainly go back every time I am in Exeter.
