Newest Review: ... galleries. For this reason I will not go into too much detail about individual pieces or artists as everyone has different tastes. There really is more to this award winning gallery than you may realise and if you live or work in the city or even spending a day in Manchester you could do worse than spending an hour or two in here. A ramp is provided for wheelchairs and buggys (wheelchairs ... more

A few weeks back, daughter no. 2 and I were out giving the dogs a run in Wythenshawe Park. It was the first time we’d been there, and although we knew it was large, we hadn’t expected to come across a half-timbered Tudor house in the middle of it. On closer inspection, we found that Wythenshawe Hall now houses an art gallery, so we decided to return another day, when daughter no. 1 would be with us, and take a look around. We went today.
