Whitworth Art Gallery


Nestling alongside the Manchester University campus just outside the city centre, the Whitworth Art Gallery is home to some of the UK's finest collections of art and design.

A visit to the Whitworth guarantees variety. Modern and historic fine art prints are displayed alongside prints, textiles and a rare collection of wallpapers.

Housed within an Edwardian façade is a light and spacious interior that plays host to regular temporary exhibitions that complement the museum's permanent collection.

The Whitworth Art Gallery is currently closed for a major redevelopment which will improve the visitor experience by doubling the public space. Be sure to regularly check the website below for updates and news.
