Local Newcastle Art on site , to be bought if the price is right. Excellently positioned cafe if the sun is out and a half decent restaurant too.

Spent a wet afternoon here. Lots to see if almost every genre. Nice cafe and free parking outside. Probably not for tots. Too many fragile things to knock over!
