Beckstones Art Gallery

Alex Saint

A small but serious family-owned gallery, Beckstones Art Gallery shows a range of artists’ work, many highly regarded and collected and leaning towards the traditional. It is in the little village of Greystoke, worth a visit in its own right for its ancient church, castle, the rather eccentric Greystoke Cycle Cafe and even an open-air lido which is open during the summer months.
