The place where Harry Porter caster the sciences. A good place to visit but nothing really amazing to stay longer than 3 hours. Oxford is a small town and good for a day tour for us. Eateries limited there.

Always walked pass here ignoring it, my parents are over from Switzerland and were keen to see as much of Oxford as we could cram in so we decided to give it a go. And I was instantly smitten. Medieval paintings and old Italian Masters in such a little space, beautiful, quiet, I couldn't believe it. The staff were amazing and so informative and helpful. I already put it on my re-visit list for next week , and took out a season ticket. Best £10 I ever spent and am so looking foreward to going back on my own next week. Simply brilliant.

I visited this twice it was so good! Incredible collection of paintings from 14 century onwards. The artworks are displayed at a sensible height , you can get very close to them and they reward intense looking . Not all the paintings are in top condition but the Fran Hals , the Bassano , the Giovanni di Paolo, the Piero dells Francesca were my personal favourites. The staff were very welcoming and the place is so quiet, a real treat in this overrun town. Highly recommended

This little gallery is quite hidden away but has some amazing old paintings and portraits. It is very quite with knowledgeable staff.
