The Castle Gallery is an absolute gem of a place to visit. It's not just for tourists, there are many wonderful pieces in here for locals too! Throughout the year you'll find so many lovely exhibitions and their front window is always a pleasure for the eyes! As well as having many beautiful paintings, they also have a superb collection...

Liked this little gallery as it had a good selection of art work particularly paintings.It is compact and bijou and staff a re welcoming and friendly. Art work doesn't look too expensive. I visited on a Saturday and wanted to bring my wife on Sunday but it was closed.

Very helpful staff. I purchased 2 pictures and were able to browse them in different lighting and given time to make our minds up. Staff are well informed and if your lucky you might just bump into one of their artist.
