Located in an outstanding setting on Wakefield's historic waterfront, the gallery offers a vibrant social space that is central to the artistic and social life of the region. Everyone is welcome to enjoy the world-class facilities including cafe, shop and education spaces and take part in an exciting programme of family activities, workshops, talks, tours and special events.
