Ferens Art Gallery

Queen Victoria Square, Carr Lane, Hull, HU1 3RA

2 hours

Being home to works by artists such as Frans Hals and David Hockney, undergone a multi-million-pound refit in 2016 and having hosted the Turner Prize in 2017, there is no wonder why the Ferens Art Gallery is regarded as one of the most important regional galleries in England.

With 12 galleries plus the Centre Court, there is a diverse range of art on display. Drawn from the nationally significant permanent collection which spans the medieval period to the present day, this magnificent collection has something for everyone to connect with.

Amongst many other themes, you could explore the Renaissance and Baroque gallery, featuring beautiful pieces by masters such as Lorenzetti. Opt for the Eighteenth Century where you’ll see work by the likes of Guardi and Canaletto. Or discover the paintings, sculpture and photography by modern and contemporary artists including Kossoff and Wearing.

If you’re visiting the gallery with little ones, then don’t miss the award-winning ‘Explore Art’ gallery on the Ground Floor. Play and create in this space packed with hands-on activities to help young children investigate works of art, exploring line, shape, texture and colour.

The gallery’s permanent collections are also joined by a programme of temporary exhibitions which are hosted in galleries 4, 7 and 8, so make sure to find out what’s on display during your visit. But that’s still not everything. Ferens Art Gallery also provides a whole range of engagement events for visitors to enjoy.
