The Walker is a really impressive gallery, with a collection that takes in a fantastic copy of Holbein's portrait of Henry VIII and other terrific pieces by Rembrandt, Millais, Rossett and Waterhouse, as well as slightly less impressive pieces by the likes of Degas and Monet. There's also a brilliant sculpture room and a really striking series of modern art in a side wing. Free entry and a beautiful building – though give the cafe a miss.

Firstly, one of THE best looking neo Gothic buildings in the world - a truly magnificent piece of architecture, on a street packed with architectural gems.
Once inside, you'll find everything from Holbein to Hockney with everything in between.
It's also a great place for kids with regular activities aimed at the little artist in the family (and you don't have to be a master to join in - my two year old loves it!)
