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.

Recently restored and reopened the Victorian decor is fantastic and well worth visiting in its own right. The gallery has a mixture of galleries which will suit some, but not all. Better signage would improve the experience.

An eclectic mix of work both ancient and modern in a glorious setting. The contemporary Xanadu is woven around the staircase vein of the building. Installations, Lowry, Millais and Bacon feed the soul.

At the time we visited, the gallery was undergoing some renovation work, so we didn't get to experience the full range of exhibits.

Good to see carefully curated exhibition last month. Good cafe and shop. Relaxing ambiance. We had an hour and a half but could have been there much longer.

There are some absolutely amazing pieces of artwork in here and definitely worth a visit. It has been closed for some time for renovations though which is a shame.
