Have been visiting for 2 years as part of the school Arts Award. The gallery always offers something new and plenty to engage the kids. The class/work room is a decent size and well equipped. The coffee, for while you're working, is excellent

Excellent contemporary gallery, staff are friendly and engage with visitors. An annual ticket is good value for money. Take your time, enjoy the work, enjoy a chat, enjoy a cuppa.

A little difficult to find, but well worth a visit. The layout is a little confusing but there were plenty of helpful staff around and some interesting exhibits.

Pallant House is an excellent introduction to British art. It combines both a permanent collection with frequently changing temporary exhibitions. The current David Bomberg display is a prime example of the latter, and is a thorough retrospective of the artist's life and work. My wife...More
