  • I've been to the gallery a few times over the years, I really do enjoy to get lost in the art work. The kids loved it too, would recommend for a family day out!  more »

  • Lovely bright and airy gallery with some really fabulous pieces of art. Do go if you are an art lover. You won't be disappointed. I wasn't and I have done my fair share of galleries throughout Britain and Europe.
  • Southampton's jewel in the crown. A fantastic collection for a provincial gallery. Free.
  • Excellent provincial art gallery focussing on British painting of the C19 and C20. Frequent special exhibitions, children's activities, and a pleasant space.
  • Lovely little art gallery, has a variety of work but some really amazing old paintings over 500 years old..
  • This is a very relaxing place to visit. Free admission. Shame that some of the rooms were closed due to exhibition being set up. Still some nice art to browse. Would like to have seen more. Would recommend.
