Family visits

Following in the footsteps of our founders G F and Mary Watts we believe in making art accessible and fun for everyone. 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 Artists' Village has plenty of space to stretch your legs, including woodland and lawns for games and picnics. The magical Arts & Crafts Watts Chapel is a short stroll away, where families can investigate mythical symbols, discover beautiful angels and carved animals of all shapes and sizes.


Admission for children 16 and under is FREE

Adult admission is half-price on Tuesdays


Watts Gallery is fully accessible for pushchairs, via lifts. Pushchairs can be taken into the Gallery or can be left in the loggia just outside the front door.

Baby changing facilities are provided.

Eating and drinking

There are lots of scenic spots for picnics around the site and the Tea Shop serves freshly baked, seasonal food. High chairs and a special children's menu are available at the Tea Shop.
