Whitworth Art Gallery review 1 Users say 4/5 Rate it

The Whitworth has undergone something of a revolution of late. A new director has shaken up the old institution, fusing a rich, historic collection (of particular note are its watercolours, textiles and wallpapers) with work by some of the world's most exciting contemporary artists. The fence that separated gallery from adjacent park has been torn down, and the gallery has high hopes that plans to extend the building into the park will go ahead. For now, make the most of its light-flooded galleries and excellent café.
