Beautiful building and grounds, clean, free public toilets, helpful, friendly staff. Our 2yo daughter particularly enjoyed the magnetic pictures on the wall for her to play with while we enjoyed the informative displays. An example for other information centres to follow!

First room of the gallery has some curios including three fantastic and very unexpected Edward Byrne Jones drawings plus some local art and landscapes. Sadly in the main gallery it's all Graham Sutherland and, for me, his work is clunky and quite unattractive so that...More

What a little gem this venue is, from the interesting art gallery in the main building to the display of student work, including some stunning fashion, in the tower. Wholesome and plentiful food in the cafe, too. Heartily recommended.
