A lovely building with sometimes interesting exhibitions. Sadly it is limited in space and content. There must be more art representing the area, but where can it be seen? Not much has changed in ten years.

High quality exhibition is soothing display space. The small gift shop was full of treasures. I was particularly impressed with the free children's activities which were first class in terms of organisation, presentation, supervision, inspirational and fun. The toilets were well maintained and the whole...More

Artspace's cafe is a lovely spot for a coffee/ breakfast but probably not an obvious one. The staff are lovely and welcoming. Food has always been good. Inside seating but does have shaded outside seating with green views.

Just a quick lunch but very nice for a work day. Fresh home made quiche and salad and prices are pretty good too.

All good, food was good and reasonably priced, why do they persist with no table service? You have to go to counter to order.
