Nice enough to pass an hour or so. Houses some lovely works of art. Must say I used to like this place more years ago. Had more of a museum about it then. With a bee hive you could see inside.

What a fabulous location, grand architecture and surroundings. Most impressed by the Hockney exhibition and the range of other artists on display. The 100 year celebration of women getting the vote is also worth a look. Lovely food in the cafe near the lake too!

Cartwright Hall has a lovely collection with a great variety. It is nice to see the diversity of Bradford reflected in the works on display.

The permanent Hockney gallery has enhanced this steand it should now attract major exhibitions of his work instead of the bias to the SE of England. There is no restaurant or cafe, but the is a cafe in the Park - check opening times.
