A great collection of art and paintings, including quite a few really famous paintings and artists including Titian. Some of the galleries are not that well set out but there is an 'exhibition' which is very nicely displayed. The Walker is well worth a visit.

On Saturday 18 Feb we returned to the Walker Art Gallery. I've been visiting the gallery since my primary school days and I've never been dissapointed. We are, in my opinion, very honoured and priviliged to have access to such an excellent collection of art, fashion and paintings at our disposal. The Gallery as always, had a number of people...

Friendly staff, great location next to railway station and the lockers were big enough for our bags. A great stop before leaving Liverpool

What an amazing venue for pottering around and enjoying a vast array of different art works in such close proximity. On an overcast morning stepping inside to a light and spacious venue open and welcoming was a real pleasure and the next two to three hours spent wandering around was time well spent. Groups of school children were engaged on... More

The gallery is situated close to Lime Street Station, which makes a visit very convenient without the hassle of parking in a city centre. I have visited twice now and there have been visiting exhibitions on both occasions. There is a wide variety of exhibits so I would think something to suit most tastes. Facilities are good, there is a... More

It was my favorite place in Liverpool, full of great neo classical statues and great paintings. Perfect place for history and art lovers.

The Walker Art Gallery is free and is warm on a cold winters afternoon. They provide secure luggage facilities for large bags. The building itself is architecturally interesting and the staff are friendly and helpful. Beyond that you're into the realms of subjectivity. There were a small number of pieces I loved, however a larger number of which I wasn't... More

A very beautiful gallery. I love it that there is a mixed art from modern to the renaissance. They do have seasonal exhibition which is lovely. I can't believe that it is free thou. There is also a cafe at the ground floor for bites and coffee:)
