Good mix of old and new. Fantastic couple of exhibitions on during visit and links to the Henry Moore Institute as well. Cafe is a lovely old room and worth a visit.

Used this for a high profile launch event and all the staff were extremely helpful. Had lots of compliments on the event and all ran smoothly. Great central location, near the station and lovely cafe which provided catering - cannot recommend this venue enough.
