  • That's what I felt. Some very nice Romney's but not too much else. The exhibit on the 1st floor left us flat. Price is too high for what was there. 
  • This has to be one the best small galleries in the U.K Currently there is an extensive exhibition of Winifred Nicholson's art which is well worth a visit but there is also a permanent collection of fi...  more »

  • We only visited the Museum of Lakeland Life, not the art gallery (for which there is an additional charge). Would highly recommend it. It is a small, manageable museum (no museum fatigue!) set out in a series of rooms, some depicting typical historic rooms from the area. The first room for example is a parlour with 17th century panelling and furniture. There is also a bedroom and kitchen (look out for the bacon settle) set out in the same way. Other rooms have information and artefacts from the history of industry in the area. The museum is also a must for Arthur Ransome fans as there is a room dedicated to him and his work, with many of his personal items such as his desk, typewriter, pipes etc and some of his personal library. I particularly liked the framed originals of some of the drawings he did for the Swallows and Amazons books.
  • Lovely building but artwork not to our taste. Saved us from the rain for a little while.
  • Fantastic local gallery with national exhibitions.
  • Who wants to see the desk and typewriter, on which he wrote Arthur Ransome my books-so here!
