loads of paintings if that's your bag but not really for me--although the architecture and ground are great and it sits in the middle of a massive park.

This year we opted for the so-called staycation and it has taken me a while to catch up and write this review. I wanted to do so because Cartwright Hall is a rare thing and well done and deserves to be better known. It describes itself as " consist(ing) mainly of 19th and 20th century British art, with strong collections... More

Cartwright Hall is based in in Lister Park and is worth a visit if you are in the area. A very popular location for wedding photos and local events.

I have been past this place many times as an adult and had fond memories of childhood picnics here with my grandparents and finally managed a return visit and was pleasantly surprised. The art exhibition was great but what made the visit was the live music which I think was an Argentinian duo, guitar and violin player and the acoustics... More

Right in the middle of Lister park. Lovely art gallery, free entry. Building and gardens are both worth a look. Think its closed on a Monday.

My family and friends, we were going to Lister park and we were lucky, that the Cartwright Hall was opened. The fact that we did not find the pram access, was a bit sad, but we are young and still went up and in :) There was an exhibition in the first room, it was called "CELEBRATING GANESHA". Also a...

Set amidst an attractive park, a joy to see such an impressive building being put to such good use. The exhibitions are well presented with helpful interactive displays to provide additional information. Free day out as even the car park has no charge. The shop would benefit from having more postcards of their paintings. There is a room where self... More

Cartwright Hall was a lovely Sunday outing. A beautiful building set in a lovely park. The inside was well laid out with interesting exhibits. The atmosphere was laid back and relaxing. With not a hint of stuffiness.
