Came to look in today only to find the building empty but no notice to explain. Took a look later at the FB page and discovered that the gallery has just closed after decades here but that a 'new space' is out there somewhere and...More

Second to the gardens this was the next most enjoyable thing we did. Could have been an art gallery in any major city, good sized with a lot of quality works on display. Worth a look

With the move of the Somerville's gallery from Mayflower St to Maker Heights that leaves New Street Ballery as probably the only Plymouth based Ballery dealing in high quality contemporary and predominantly west country based art. This listing should be in the shopping category. New...More

Well established and always interesting. Not cheap. Local or west country painters. Have bought from here and very satisfied. A few exhibitions a year but usually a reasonable mixed selection to browse. Chatty and well informed staff. Just unpredictable hours.
