Cartwright Hall Art Gallery
Standing in Lister Park, Bradford, Cartwright Hall was built on the former site of Manningham Hall, and opened as a gallery in 1904. The hall housed a display of loaned artworks before acquiring its own collection of Victorian and Edwardian works using funds from the 1904 Bradford Industrial Exhibition. Perusing the gallery is perfect for a leisurely trip out.
See sparkling Victorian rooms and furniture, paintings, and decorative art. Special galleries deal with natural history, archaeology and social history, all of which can be seen on your visit along with the internationally important display of stained glass by Morris and Co. The Castle also hosts changing exhibitions from their collections and the community. Family areas ensure that there is something for all ages so bring the grandkids along too.
