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 is set in the beautiful Lister park, a place with plenty of parking, a boating lake and an excellent little cafe. The scale of the gallery is just right for a day visit that takes in the park. The collections are in a...More

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.

Lovely afternoon out with young children. There is a play area with a variety of activities. The Cartwright Hall is located within the grounds of the park - lovely for photos and to have a look at some of the art pieces.

A fabulous building containing an interesting cross section including Bradford based artists and some classics form the Indian sub continent mixed in a Warhol, Lowry and some preRaphaelites. The Hockney gallery is worth a visit in its own right.
