Nice gifts hop and lovely atmosphere on the inside. Each exhibit also a small information plack beside it. Just taken away one star as cafe a bit pricey but that's the norm these days. Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait … More

A well appointed gallery with a great mix of art from pre Raphaelite to modern. One gallery has different forms of art mixed together forming a very interesting mash up of styles which works very well. Currently there is an exhibition of photography from the National Portrait Gallery which is well worth the visit alone. Also some glass and ceramics.

Have been taking my granddaughter to The Little Artists Session for the past year. It's on every Monday morning, and Steph, the lady who runs the session is amazing as she has to think of different subjects every week! It starts off with a song to introduce your child to the others, followed by a trip around the gallery, then the children get to produce their own artwork, and there's a story to end. Places are limited, with a maximum of 15 children, so booking is a must! I can only go on my experience, but we love it! If you're looking for somewhere different, to take the kids, give it a go! Ticket price is £6.47 per child for an hour.

If you want to see some oil paintings in Newcastle, this gallery is your best choice. They have two free floors and all the artwork they have is something they usually don’t change but they are not too bad. They have one room on the top floor that has seasonal art exhibits but I heard they are not worth 7 pounds. I think it depends on the exhibition. The art shop is lovely but again their products are mostly generic, but some of the art books are very cool.

I visited the Gallery as part of the gala opening evening event of the annual conference of the British museum association 2023.I should have and probably will spend there more time. It's certainly worth that investment.What I mainly learned is the very basic concept of art and genres of the "North East." Honestly, I didn't have any idea such a thing exists! Why would I?!Also, it's a very rich and generous gallery, and it's free and in an impressive building in the city center.Enjoy!!

A lovely gallery to visit with great history of the shipyard area through an exhibition of black and white photography by Chris Killip.We also visited another 2 galleries of paintings which spanned several styles including artists from the Newlyn School.The gallery is close to the Library and free to visit; contributions welcome.My favourite was probably the work by Bloch on the first floor landing.There is a lovely gift shop and also a cafe.The staff were lovely and very helpful.

The Laing has a great cafe on the ground floor. There's a lift or walk up a few stairs from the entrance.Sitting in a cafe with beautiful artwork, China & a marble statue is special.Entry to the museum is free with a charge for special displays.

The gallery featured paintings created using various mediums (such as watercolour and oil). The paintings also provided an informative depiction of Newcastle through a historical perspective. The staff were also really friendly. I enjoyed my experience and would happily go again! Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait … More
