  • The Towner not only hosts significant exhibitions in a modern building whose design respects the art, but also its curators have the wisdom to support many local charities and art-related initiatives. Works of national significance are displayed alongside exhibits that trace the interpretation of Sussex landscape and life. Accessibility is made easy by the step-free entrance and remarkably large lifts. A good shop and pleasant refreshments round off the experience. For residents and visitors, this is an enriching place.
  • I enjoyed my visit very much. The entrance had an interesting shop and was bright and airy. The displays are on three floors, accessible by an industrial sized lift or stairs. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The top floor has a good cafe, with a balcony outside with good views. The food and drink was enjoyable and not too pricey. The work of local artists was displayed on the top floor. The middle floor had an exhibition of Blomberg paintings from the twentieth century. The ground floor had art installations. The toilets were spotless. It's an independent gallery dependent on donations. Well worth a visit,🙂
  • Super building tucked on the side of the theatre. The exhibitions were almost as good as the designand even the café was OK. If you are in the area and have the slightest interest in art or architecture a visit is a must.
  • What is on display is well worth seeing. We loved the schools exhibition. The only problem with the Towner is that it does not make full use of the fantastic display areas. So much art in store that is never displayed. Few want to pay £6 to view art in the basement storerooms! Thank you to the fantastic staff at the great little Cafe.
  • Excellent gallery and collection. Nice cafe too
