GO ARt Galleries In Norwich

Art Galleries in Norwich If you’re an art lover then you’ll enjoy your visit to Norwich as it has a wealth of classical and contemporary art galleries for you to visit.

The city’s main gallery is at the Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery [map], which has collections of British fine and decorative art from the 16th century to the present day.

The regularly undated displays include work by the Norwich School of Artists, John Sell Cotman, Rembrandt along with Dutch 17th century oils and the world’s largest collection of British Ceramic teapots.

Also worth a visit is the Norwich Gallery [map] at the Norwich School of Art and Design on Redwell Street, which has a changing programme of work by living artists, designers and craft makers. The gallery attracts more than 40,000 visitors each year and aims to encourage contemporary art and design education in the region.

For more contemporary works by some of the best local artists head to Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts [map] at the University of East Anglia, which also has collections from the Tate Gallery. Unfortunately, the gallery is closed for refurbishing work until late 2005 but there are a number of touring exhibitions taking place around Norwich.

Other art galleries worth checking out during your stay in the city include the Contact Gallery [map], a contemporary art gallery on St Benedict’s Street, and Mandells Gallery [map] on Elm Hill, which displays arts, crafts and antiques.
