Very interesting art gallery. Good permanent + temp exhibitions. The shop is also good for cards etc if you want to get something a bit more unique. Cafe good too
The cafe alone is worth your visit, an oasis of calm in the city with an extensive and somewhat exotic collection of cakes, and a lovely menu of light meals and sandwiches. The quality of the ingredients from the jam to fine and fragrant tea was evident in my cream tea. Service is also efficient and welcoming.
