York Art Gallery

York Art Gallery is right in the heart of York, its so easy to find and well worth a visit. The gallery had a long renovation last year to radically change the space inside, it really has benefited from the changes. When I first visited there was a variety of small dimly lit narrow spaces which felt more like a house. Many of these small rooms have gone and it now has a more open feeling inside. The exhibition space seems to have increased too with more on show which is good because entry is now paid.
