Please note that our upstairs galleries are currently closed. During lockdown we have started large scale repairs to the roof and external cornice, and continued with restoration work to the blue staircase. Unfortunately during the course of the work we have discovered other maintenance issues in some of our galleries, so we are embarking on investigation work inside the building to understand more. With this work going on we cannot safely operate a one way system upstairs, so for the short term the first floor will not be open. We will keep you updated on any developments.

Take a look at our FAQs prior to your visit.

Unless otherwise stated, we are closed on bank holidays.
