Interesting place

There was an interesting exhibition about the student paper but there isn't a lot to see. I'd only spend about 10-15 minutes there.

Gallery covers some small exhibits and displays. As these are constantly changing this makes it an interesting place to visit. Lancaster university covers exhibits by or about John Ruskin himself at the none other Ruskin Library at no charge. Disability access

There's really not much to see - a few pictures, all modern and none of any distinction that I could find. It isn't worth the parking fee or even the petrol to get up the university driveway.
