We have lots of activities to ensure you and your family get the most out of your visit - just ask at Visitor Services for our fun and free activity sheets or adventure backpacks - there is always something fun to do. Our new galleries are there to be explored and friendly staff will be on hand to answer your questions. We are perfectly positioned for a fun day out with the family, a short walk from both the coast and the city centre.
Whether you're looking for a fun, one-off experience or a longer course to develop your skills, our range of Adult Taster Sessions, Classes and Courses allow you to progress at your own pace. They offer a great opportunity for you to learn from the region's best professional practising artists in a relaxed and friendly environment.
