Well worth the small entry by donation. What a marvellous thing that this building has been retained and remains open to the public. I loved it.

This convent transformation into a cafe, bar, event reception, art gallery & museum is both clever & interesting. Loved the conservatory cafe with turquoise walls, cast iron tables & music. Staff were very welcoming & informative. Would recommend a visit here.
