Unfortunately, we were not aware off what a great spot this was and only allowed 45 minutes before closing time. The art gallery was much more extensive than expected with a wonderful display of prints. The gift shop was outstanding and worth a visit on its own. We understand that there are regular concerts held there as well. The café... More

I was there on a Friday night for a performance that took place in 8 or so different rooms of the Centre. It worked so well because of the architecture and the history of the building.

This place is just beautiful! The front courtyard and cafe is a wonderful place to sit and be inspired. The art gallery itself displays constantly changing exhibitions. Most are excellent, but you might be unlucky. The centre also plays host to a wide variety of free and not-so-free music concerts.

Located in the incredible old Lunatic Asylum, this centre offers an interesting range of temporary exhibitions, actually quite cutting edge and innovative. Good shop with high quality merchandise and a cafe, which we didn't try. Certainly a definite for any art afficiandos

An interesting old venue with free music some Sunday afternoons. Free art exhibitions of various styles. Good cafe and shop. Best bit is that the bust stops directly across the road so will take you back into town afterwards and the bus is free!
