Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Crazy that you would go to all the effort to set this up and then do little to inspire people to visit your town centre to view the art,!!!

So people who have shops and businesses in town centres need to create experiences to attract people in who may then purchase things and indeed if the experience is good tell other people.

We are big arty lovers and travel to see and experience art, we didn't even get what this was about, saw a few pieces and thought that's nice, didn't realise it was a curated collection!

Great idea, to have lovely artwork dotted around the town centre, just remember to look higher than your own eyeline, much of the art is on the side of buildings above head height. Gallery town has a website that tells you about new exhibits worth looking out for.

Must admit I was pretty impressed with this open air gallery. I came across it whilst on a visit to see friends in the area. What a pleasant area it was and shows that the artistic talent is out there and Im very happy to see it shown off for all to see now! Make a point of visiting for sure!

Visited Rotherham on a shopping trip recently with a friend, as we had heard about all the little individual shops around the High Street (which were fab!) and came across the outdoor art trail throughout the town centre, some pieces easy to see, some you have to really look for!!! A really nice idea and made our trip even more enjoyable, worth a visit!

I visited Rotherham over the weekend and have to say I was very impressed. The paintings are absolutely unreal, I just couldn't fault this it.
This is a must visit place if you ever visit Rotherham even if your not very artistic.

What a great idea an open air art trail throughout the town centre, loved the children's artwork especially liked College Lane! Tip: get an Art Trail Guide from the Visitors Centre or Main Library.

What a great idea to brighten up the Town Centre.
Alongside the independent High Street regeneration makes Rotherham a worthwhile and pleasant place to spend a couple of hours again.
