Family visits

Following in the footsteps of our founders G F and Mary Watts, we believe in making art accessible and fun for everyone, and families are warmly welcomed to Watts Gallery - Artists' Village. We support Kids in Museums and offer an imaginative programme of events for families with children of all ages. Free family trails and resources are available every day of the week.

'The children loved the information packs they were given on arrival, not only educational but fun too. Would definitely recommend this to any family looking for something different for a day out.' — TripAdvisor Review

Introduce your children to art and local history before exploring our woodland and lawns, the perfect place for games and picnics. Bring the whole family for a full day of creativity and culture.
