  • What a beautiful gallery and wonderful tea rooms. Didn't realise this was here very impressed by everything in the gallery. What a little gem. We certainly will be telling our friends. 
  • The gallery is a bit of an unexpected gem. We visited for the first time with our two small ones for the Lego exhibition they were holding. The building itself is an impressive relatively new structure built with lots of thought to the historical location within the Welbeck Estate. This really pays off inside where the galleries are well lit and of a decent size, though by no means huge. We especially liked the vault like doors on the lower floor gallery room, they had some real clout to them! It was busy on our visit as it was half term and the exhibit was aimed at children, but there was enough room to mill about. The staff were pretty helpful and I guess due to busyness, you didn't get that feeling that you can do in a quiet art gallery of being constantly observed! The attached cafe looked to be service some rather tasty sounding food, but it was very hectic so we headed to the garden centre next door.
  • First class facility. We'll worth a visit. Other things to see in this location.
  • An awesome place to spend a few hours. Take the kids. It's free
  • A nice little gallery with quite a bit to see. I often make the effort to visit when I'm visiting the Dukeries Garden Centre. They have a small shop and a café too. Free parking and free entry.
  • Excellent friendly service. Delicious, freshly cooked food.
