“A civilised lunch break”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

Go for lunch, sit in the gardens, wander the gallery then the park - calm and tranquil, interesting and stimulating. Worth a visit.

“Worth regular visits”
Reviewed 22 February 2013

Have visited the Arts Centre a number of times as the regular changes of exhibitions means there is always something new to see. The other thing that makes it different is that it is mainly one man's collection of what he likes and doesn't like and can be very eclectic. This means it doesn't have the same atmosphere as a curated art gallery where items may be there because of an artist's name or current fashions. This also means you are bound to see something you love and something you dislike - it becomes a more personal viewing experience.
