The Whitworth

Manchester's gallery in the park

A £15 million development has recently transformed it, fully integrating it into the park it calls home. An art garden by Sarah Price, sculpture terrace and orchard garden, alongside new spaces that embrace the park, such as a landscape gallery and a café in the trees, all reflect its beautiful setting.

With double the room, and with exhibitions of new work by some of the world's leading artists alongside eclectic exhibitions drawn from its internationally rated collection of British watercolours, textiles, wallpapers and fine art, the Whitworth has become one of the city's must-see cultural destinations.
