    The Laing is not a huge gallery as experienced in London, etc., but it does have some exhibits from notable artists. Works are usually confined to British 18-20th Century, which makes it a little limi...  more »

  • A typical local Art gallery in many ways, though it is quite small and unless you're a real enthusiast you probably won't be there more than about 3-4 hours. The John Martin paintings are a highlight of the permanent collection. Free, which is nice.
  • Always interesting. Free to enter and good exhibitions of art, not as good as the London art galleries obviously but quiet and peaceful. A good cafe with great cards for sale that match every occasion with copies of some classic paintings. A good book and gift shop.
  • Great gallery featuring free and paid exhibitions. Lots of important historical and local artists plus they pull in some big hitters too.
  • Interesting with a range of art from different periods and styles. Always has something new to offer.
  • Fantastic atmosphere and a great selection of changing exhibits - always something new to see
