Getting goose bumps even thinking about it!
  • Definitely worth a look. Interesting old building, and good selection of art and other things to look at.
  • Inspiring
  • A superb provincial gallery invariably featuring wonderful Newlyn School artists. Also worth seeing is the excellent 1st floor local social history rooms and then enjoy the delightful atmosphere of The Orangery Restaurant for a light bite to eat.
