Walker Art Gallery, William Brown Street, Liverpool, L3 8EL – Visit Now

The Walker Art Gallery is a small but perfectly formed traditional gallery. It houses an impressive collection of paintings, sculpture and decorative art from 13th century to present day. Its excellent Victorian collection (including some Pre-Raphaelite masterpieces) is bolstered by changing temporary exhibitions. Every two years it hosts the John Moores Painting Prize, one of the most prestigious art competitions in the UK (patron Peter Blake claims his win in 1961 remains one of his most proud achievements) which supports artists, and brings the very best of contemporary painting to Liverpool. For future artists there is a very good children’s gallery, and on the ground floor there’s a cafe and shop.
