  • We went to the City Gallery on a rainy day in Welly. Entry is free and the exhibition was nice. Staff is extremely friendly. Would definitely recommend.  more »
  • It is a lovely space with friendly staff. The exhibitions are all temporary, so you do not know what you are going to get. The stuff that I saw did not really appeal to me, but it may be different...  more »

  • Contemporary gallery with several exhibitions on simultaneously. Installations, moving image and interactive exhibitions. A good place to get your art fix. Small cafe within gallery as well. Free entry. A must for art lovers.
  • Nice exhibitions. Lovely building. Free entry. Really nice little cafe restaurant with an outside area.(pricey though but it is just my point of view) Also there is a cute gift shop.
