COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

To help everyone enjoy their visit, we have updated our COVID-19 guidance:

Please note we strongly recommend wear face coverings in our venues to help keep everyone safe.

Our one-way system is still in place for social distancing, so please do give each other plenty of space in the gallery.

There are plenty of hand sanitisers around the gallery for visitors to use and we’ll be continuing our increased cleaning regime.

We are doing everything we can to remain fully open during this time. We might, on occasion need to close parts of the gallery due to staff shortages and as we react to the current COVID-19 climate. Please bear with us, your safety is our priority whilst in our venues.
