Attraction Information

Laing Art Gallery has something for everyone to enjoy. A dynamic exhibition programme brings an exciting variety of art to your doorstep, while fun learning events encourage even the youngest of children to get involved.

It is situated in the centre of Newcastle, and are home to an impressive collection of sculpture and art, which can be enjoyed throughout the season, including dynamic landscapes by John Martin, and sculpture by Henry Moore. The watercolours are of national importance, and there is an extensive decorative art collection to marvel at. There are many outstanding local paintings and objects on display in the ‘Northern Spirit' display on the ground floor.

The Laing prides itself on its temporary exhibition programme, and it has brought paintings from around the world to the North East, including historic, modern, and contemporary art.

The learning team is on hand throughout the year providing talks from leading contemporary artists, and fun hands on activities for families. Many of these events, like the gallery, are free of charge!
