York bakery here we come!!! Is a nice feature for some lush coffee!! To accompany a walk round the gallery. I do think it will be busier at the Ikon because of this

An attractive building and we loved the lift, which is a permanent exhibit and a "must hear". The experience as a whole depends on what is being exhibited, I don't think there is any standing collection. We were intrigued - but not convinced - by the Roger Hiorns exhibition that was on when we visited. The horizontal choir was an... More

Check out what is on and the Spotlight tours are a revelation. The Ikon has been an ikon for many years and is a must visit if you are interested in the world of modern art.

We had a very nice lunch of Egg Benedict (Spinach for herself and salmon for me). Good service and seemingly fresh ingredients we were very happy although maybe the muffins could have been a bit larger to do justice to the excellent eggs.

Lovely atmosphere in this small gallery. Good use of space & light. Holds some interesting exhibitions. The shop sells an interesting array of local products: jewelery and other artworks.The cafe serves a decent variety of good food & is lovely to sit outside in the summer. Well worth a visit.

This gallery makes great use of an old Gothic design school which means that, as a bonus, you get to see architectural features close up. There were quirky, thoughtful exhibitions on when I went and I imagine that the standard will always be high. I had several interesting conversations with the very knowledgeable staff there. Well worth a visit.

An interesting modern art gallery housed in a thoughtfully designed and very interesting building. On the ground floor there is a good shop, a cafe where I had a lovely pot of tea (although somewhat expensive), and other facilities. There are two floors of temporary exhibitions. These will obviously vary over time, and also different artworks appeal to different people.... More
