      V&A Tim Walker exhibition.

      I received V & A membership as a gift last Christmas, visited most week’s pre lock-down, missing spontaneity and meeting friends in members lounge

      For me, Probably the Birmingham Art museum but regularly used to go the Herbert Art Gallery in Coventry

      Hayward gallery, Even with London in stage two. It’s not easy is it?

      also The Pallant in Chichester. V good. Can’t you manage going out?

      • Lesley R 1st November 2020 at 6:49 am

        Chichester is one place I havent been in this country. Must go asap after this lockdown. In the meantime zI am off to google The Pallant and dream.

        Hi – Love The Pallant – you get such a great atmosphere in there – even if only stopping for tea and cake ( superb cakes!) Have you been to Charleston Farmhouse. So quirky – absolutely off the wall. Sadly its been closed for most of this year..

      Hi. My Husband had a birthday gift of a weekend for 2 in London . He had tickets for an experience in Walthamstow so I pre booked a slot for the William Morris Gallery.  The Gallery is little and I am glad we booked as it was quiet.  The area is beautiful despite being a small sub area it was friendly and I felt very c 19 safe despite traveling from a medium to a high teir.  We took the Train too and it was practically empty.

      This week as part of my art course I went to the castle Bude which has 3 galleries of local people work. It was really nice to see art

    • Somethingshort 31st October 2020 at 4:37 pm

      I have had the opportunity to go to galleries abroad and thought…..oh, I’ll go the next time I am here. When this is all over, I vow that I will never again miss another art gallery.

      I enjoy all the London galleries, but my favorite one is in my home town of Birmingham. (I’m slightly biased)

    • JaneBD 31st October 2020 at 10:24 pm

      I also love the V and A museum ! I can wander around it for hours.There is a small gallery in Eastbourne which was very pleasant to discover!

      I recently visited an exhibition of Grayson Perry’s early work in Bath. I enjoyed it , worth a visit if you’re over this way once they can re-open.

      • aspie auntie 1st November 2020 at 11:04 am

        I like Grayson Perry’s work, and his art class programme he did on Channel 4 during the first lockdown.  He seemed to bring Harry Hill out of the doldrums when he asked for celebrity contributions as well as those from viewers.

    • Bill on an Island 1st November 2020 at 4:02 pm

      Tate Modern 3 years ago! Went to NPG the same weekend and the V & A. Discovered Richter at the Tate and want to go back as soon as I can. I plan to tour europe when I retire in a camper and visit as many galleries as I can take in the process.


    • Linny 1st November 2020 at 6:59 pm

      Last gallery I visited was Tate Britain last January. Was walking past and decided to go in. Love when things happen by chance.😀

    • Mark S 1st November 2020 at 7:05 pm

      the last time that i visited an art gallery was over 10 years ago in Rome. Have never been to Tate in LOndon

    • Ellen Turner 1st November 2020 at 7:55 pm

      Nottingham Contemporary last weekend for the Grace Jones exhibition. It was very interesting with some Warhol pictures  and other pictures of her and photos mapping out her career.

    • Deleted User 4th November 2020 at 7:49 am

      FACT Liverpool. Just such a lovely space and has a Picturehouse cinema too which showed lots of art house films as well as main stream cinema. Sadly now closed because of lockdown 🙁

      • Millie 6th November 2020 at 9:33 am

        Not heard of that one J. Knew Bluecoat, and I was artist in residence at the Walker many moons ago. ! 🤣 I don’t live near a major city now – Beautiful inspirational scenery/coast to paint but bit culturally sparce! x no galleries for anyone for a month.🤦🏼‍♀️😜😕


    • Peter C 6th November 2020 at 2:45 pm

      The Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid in February – with a friend who happens to have an Art History degree. Thoroughly recommend it – particularly as the Prado has massive tourist queues all day every day. This art gallery is not far from the Prado and has stacks of well-known and lesser known artwork in chronological order. Busy but accessible.

    • Hils 7th November 2020 at 10:33 am

      Hi, last physical gallery was Cartwright Hall in Bradford but visit the National Gallery online weekly. Keeps me somewhat sane.

    • EastAndrew 7th November 2020 at 8:41 pm

      Tate Modern

    • Stuart60 8th November 2020 at 6:26 pm

      National Portrait Gallery and a visit to a small gallery up the road form the National featuring work by Hazel Soan.

    • ginakass 9th December 2020 at 5:19 pm

      Hi Millie, I’ve just joined rest less. I feel the same, I’m so desperate to get on a train and go to galleries. In the autumn I went to see an exhibition at The Mall Gallery and it was such a treat. I actually moved here 3 weeks before lockdown so that I could do these things more easily, and it’s been taken away. Another year almost gone. I really hope that one day soon to be free again. Gina

      Miss the Yorkshire sculpture Park. Amazing place and distinguished artists exhibit there. Hepworth is another great place. But can only get my fix from the local 20/21 art centre in scunthorpe at mo.

      • Millie 15th December 2020 at 8:53 am

        Art centre good? Ashamedly Not been to yorkshire Park or Hepworth yet even before this year! I saw great open exhibition at Scarborough gallery on line – top class. Loads of places I want to go to /see next year – Margate t emin gallery? Farleys farmhouse – home of surrealism – I love Lee Miller and home of Bloomsbury group – Charleston. All miles and miles away from me but a trip to look forward to. Keep smiling .Millie x

    • Deleted User 15th December 2020 at 8:57 am

      20/21 is only small but does exhibit a, variety of artists but limited by space. Thanks for further suggestions. More to discover

    • Deleted User 15th December 2020 at 12:16 pm

      Now that FACT Liverpool has re-opened i’m looking forward to going to this sometime soon.

      Also looking forward to when Manchester Art Gallery re-opens to see Grayson Perry’s Art Club exhibition. I loved the tv show and the recent one on Channel 4 showing the exhibition being set up. Looks fab.

    • Lynn57 17th December 2020 at 2:16 pm

      The North East Art Collective in Eldon Square Newcastle. I love to buy art work from local artists. I bought a wonderful sculpture made from odds and ends of a war horse. Amazing what the artist did with folks, spark plugs, spanner and industrial waste metal.

    • Maximus1V 17th December 2020 at 6:37 pm

      Reijksmuseum, I am a painter and will have one my paintings hung there later this year it’s a great honour

    • Dave J 17th December 2020 at 7:27 pm

      Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Seems an eternity ago.

    • SoniaB 30th December 2020 at 11:24 am

      I went to the Walker just before Christmas mainly for the Linda McCartney exhibition, but also because it’s one of my favourite places in my world.

    • Acinorev 3rd January 2021 at 3:03 pm

      Hi Millie I love Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. I volunteer at one of their sites in Birmingham and highly recommend this – well when we are not all confined to barracks lol! Have you tried online virtual tours of the worlds museums online? Just Google “Virtual museum tours online’ I like the free ones 🙂 of course, of which there are loads. I like the Rijksmuseum one. Happy touring!
