I highly recommend this thought provoking art centre both for its architecture and the interesting exhibitions. I took my two granddaughters to see the Gee Vaucher exhibition. It was very well presented and made a lasting impression on my 15 year old granddaughter so I bought her the presentation book. At just £15 it was a bargain given that the exhibition was free. We had also spent the day visiting the Castle and Hollytrees but she voted Firstsite the best of the day.

My son and I purchased jug from a local gallery in Long Melford to give as a gift on mothers day. Bought for its lovely vibrant colours and design the gift went down a storm. We then researched the artist now known to be Pru Green, Wivenhoe and decided to visit the gallery that very day. After an hours drive we were met with a wonderfully warm welcome from Rosie Harman (whose work is also on display), and the lady herself, Pru Green. Thanks for helping to make a wonderful day.

The Minories art gallery always has really interesting exhibitions that allow you to get into the back story from meeting artists to discussion groups and days of creative activities. I have visited many times and enjoy a piece of cake and tea in the garden after. My husband and I love it so much we got married there last year. This is a really beautiful spot of idyll and folly fantasy, well worth visiting.
