Please note that Leeds Art Gallery will be temporarily closed to visitors after British Art Show 8 ends on 10th January 2016. This is to allow for major repairs to the Victorian roof of the building. The building will reopen in 2017. The beautiful Tiled Hall cafe will remain open to visitors whilst these works take place as will the Gallery shop. We apologise for the disappointment this will cause.

Unfortunately the gallery was unexpectantly closed on the day we visited , but the gallery craft shop is amazing , fantastic jewellery , glasswear , prints etc well worth a visit for that special or different present.

My son (10) and I visited on Tuesday morning. I was sad to find the gallery shut but I understand that repairs must be made.

We have visited this art gallery several times and always enjoyed the visit. This time during our trip to Leeds we were disappointed to find that it was closed. The gentleman on the desk informed us that it is undergoing major work to the roof and they expect to reopen again in October 2017.

One of the art galleries I visit on a regular basis, a great mixture of older and newer art and some really interesting large pieces. Plenty to see and easy to spend an hour or two each visit. There is also a very nice eating place attached called the tiled hall.

A sculpture outside and the gift shop is open - apart from that nothing to see. Better luck next year?

A brilliant gallery in the heart of the city that remains one of my favourites. I visit about once a year usually and never get tired of it.
