What a brilliant surprise this gallery was. I went for the Comics Creatrix exhibition,which I thoroughly enjoyed. A small gallery with a great feel to it. The staff were lovely and informative and it has a really good gift shop! I will be keeping an eye on this place for more exhibitions,I can see they have an eye for the great and unusual. 


Visited for the first time last week and was completely charmed. This new and fairly diminutive museum is currently showing an exhibition of Ladybird books. Colourful and well-curated, with a great gift shop. It does come with a £7 price tag (without gift aid), so you need to be fairly interested in the subject matter. Would make a great day out coupled with a stroll along the canal, and lunch at nearby Grain Store.
