Stumbled upon this superb gallery on a short day visit to Thirsk. The gallery staff were welcoming and informative and the gallery itself was well lit, well presented and spacious, with prints and originals on display over two floors.

With several displays set out over 2 floors, the Zillah Bell gallery offers a superb collection of Norman Ackroyd Etchings alongside visiting exhibitions. Beautifully presented in a somewhat quirky but historic building.

This hidden gem has some fantastic work in it - a real range of paintings and prints. Plus they sell books, jewellery etc. Great for a quick present buying, but also lovely to wander around if I have more time. Great work in there and...More

Well organized, friendly and lots of time and space to browse. Welcoming all round so why not open a tiny space for coffee and cakes - you'd provide a lot more pleasant visit than most other venues in town

There is plenty of art to be found in this gallery that is thought provoking... I found it to be a very nice experience, with different media and artists to choose from.
