The University of Manchester is fortunate in having an art gallery such as the Whitworth, recently extended and refurbished and winner of the Art Fund Museum of the Year in 2015. It has a fine and extensive collection of its own, but its main strength...More
We, a family with 2 young children, visited the cafe in the art gallery. We were handed a menu, a very short menu. The cafe is semi self service. We were all disappointed with the choice. I ordered soup. It was tepid and sadly with...More
What a total waste of time this place is - I took my daughter and two of her friends during the summer holidays, as they had a school art project and I wanted to encourage them.
Honestly, we were finished in under an hour -...More

The coffee was...More

What a shame that in this stunning new building extension there is no room to showcase some of the gallery's collection- all that was on show was contemporary ' challenging' installations with no theme.

As for being able to ask to view a particular favourite, wow, that’s inclusive: keep...More
