Enter the Gallery through a magnificent Victorian hallway

The entrance hall contains a bronze sculpture Lady-hare on dog by local artist Sophie Ryder. The grand Victorian hall with impressive columns and ceiling, has a vast staircase leading to the first floor permanent exhibition area, which is free entry to the public.

The small lower gallery may be accessed from this hall, as well as the shop which stocks a wide range of cards, art materials and books. There is usually a contemporary exhibition in both of the lower galleries. Check our Events calendar to find out more before you visit. Stairs lead to the permanent collection on the first floor which is free of charge.
