The David Hockney Gallery is brilliant, with a small, but comprehensive collection of artworks from his diverse & lengthy career. The information is excellent, and we left feeling we knew significantly more than before the visit. Hard to praise it highly enough, we were very...More

Cartwright Hall has a lovely collection with a great variety. It is nice to see the diversity of Bradford reflected in the works on display.

The permanent Hockney gallery has enhanced this steand it should now attract major exhibitions of his work instead of the bias to the SE of England. There is no restaurant or cafe, but the is a cafe in the Park - check opening times.

Lovely afternoon out with young children. There is a play area with a variety of activities. The Cartwright Hall is located within the grounds of the park - lovely for photos and to have a look at some of the art pieces.

A fabulous building containing an interesting cross section including Bradford based artists and some classics form the Indian sub continent mixed in a Warhol, Lowry and some preRaphaelites. The Hockney gallery is worth a visit in its own right.
