Art Gallery Architectural Building
Shop and dine within the restored buildings of a 13th-century friary at Blackfriars. After sitting empty for many years, the area now houses various craft workshops and a high-end restaurant that uses locally sourced ingredients. Stop by the exhibition also located here to read up on the area's history. Take time to notice the original medieval buildings of the cloisters that are still standing today.
