    Met a friend of mine there last week as he loves his art. Some fantastic pieces ranging from modern day Damien Hurst to a Turner painting. It's free to get in and we'll worth appreciating  more »

  • Sheffield is worth visiting for several reasons but a trip to the Graves should be top of the list. A superbly comprehensive collection, a recent addition is a huge Greyson Perry tapestry. The 1930s building also holds the Public Library and shows how municipal architecture was once functional and inspiring. Perhaps a bit of restoration might not be a bad thing!
  • Really nice gallery that just keeps on going. Great for anyone who enjoys art in all it's forms and wants something little different to do. Perfect place for dates coupled with a meal or coffee and cake.
  • Had a very pleasant visit with my daughter for about an hour. Some very interesting exhibits and it certainly helped get my daughter engaged in thinking about different types and styles of art. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Definitely would go there again.
  • We've been before and found it pretty good, but we went again on Easter weekend (a Saturday) to find it shut. Perhaps not the greatest idea for folk visiting the city for the holidays.
  • I like Graves Gallery because of its modest size. Quite often you can feel swamped by artwork, but this gallery strikes a nice balance between keeping you interested but not overwhelming you.
