“Small but a joy to visit”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We are lucky to have this wonderful gallery on our doorstep. We visited the Hockney - which was an interesting display of his early printmaking and put his later work in perspective. The permanent collection is worth investigating too - as you leave the Hockney there is the DPG's own Veronese hanging on the wall. The gallery comes with its own cafe and gardens and is always a joy to visit.

“Elegant, refined, lovely facilities”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

The DPG is in a beautiful location. Gorgeous building, lovely gardens and a lovely cafe-restaurant with outside space. The exhibition space isn't huge and the main exhibitions can be pretty traditional but they have some nice visiting exhibitions.
It's a lovely place to visit.

A fascinating exhibition in this beautiful little gallery. Well worth visiting, especially the earlier work. I always love the permanent display too.
