Please note that Leeds Art Gallery will be temporarily closed to visitors after British Art Show 8 ends on 10th January 2016. This is to allow for major repairs to the Victorian roof of the building. The building will reopen in 2017. The beautiful Tiled Hall cafe will remain open to visitors whilst these works take place as will the Gallery shop. We apologise for the disappointment this will cause.

The tiled hall café in itself is a great attraction - a beautiful room - and really nice food - although no children's menu... The art gallery itself is beautiful - there were lots of things to do in the children's room and also some...More

The problem with this place is it is never fully open at any one time. There is always a closed bit. There is usually someone to explain the visiting exhibits but not the rest of the gallery. It isn’t particularly well laid out, there is...More
