  • This has always been an unsung venue of Hull, with some world class artwork. After a subtle makeover and refurbishment, this space is back open and doing its bit to elevate local artists as well as heavyweight names from a variety of artistic movements. There is a great atmosphere in the gallery. This is a great place for young children's first 'hands on' encounter with art, with several areas for creating their own masterpieces. Excellent Wheelchair and Pram access. On-site cafe which serves lunches and a good gift shop.
  • Very poorly lit - light reflecting on to glass of many pictures and art work. Disappointing. During one video installation people have to walk next to video screen to access toilets limiting and interrupting viewing. Skin an excellent exhibition - would highly recommend but this is a positive reflection of the artists rather than the gallery . As with other comments- it leaves me questioning how the £50,000000 has been spent.
  • If you like art of any era this gallery has lots to see and quality too. Not big - don't think national gallery! - but still special and worth at least an hour
  • Excellent selection of quality art. Lovely setting. Helpful staff.
  • Staff are friendly and really helpful. Baby changing facilities and wheel chair access made a difference to our Feren Gallery experience. (I changed the baby twice but I still couldn't get one that would stop crying....only joking... lol)
