Visited here yesterday during a weekend in Newcastle. We walked from the city centre. Lovely building, nice selection of art and relatively affordable. We had a snack in the cafe upstairs - great views and good selection of food and drink. Very peaceful.

Food is quite good, and the space is pleasant with plenty to look at. All the artwork is for sale, and a lot of it is very high quality.

Visited for browse around last saturday, and enjoyed looking at the array of art on display here, sadly everything was a little out of my price range so no actual purchases.
