  • Friends from London were visiting me, so I brought them to see some beautiful pieces of art. Quite extraordinary colours! We were so impressed. We will never forget this amazing experience.
  • This library is tucked away and can be hard to find. I've visited mainly during open days and art exhibitions (held in the central cafe / gallery area). The rest of the building is not accessible to the public since it's a members only library - but anyone who is interested can apply. The interiors are lovely and it's worth a wander.
  • Visited the Northern Exposure exhibition with some colleagues from Online Ventures in February. The exhibition was great and the building itself is beautiful.
