Pre-booking for timed admission is essential

Built to exhibit the work of leading Victorian artist George Frederic Watts, Watts Gallery first opened its doors to the public on 1 April 1904.

Upholding the artist's belief that art plays a major part 'in the world's wellbeing', today this Grade II* listed building continues to showcase the art of G F Watts. From his early work and social realist scenes to celebrated portraits and ambitious symbolic paintings, the Historic Galleries trace the evolution of his art over a prolific 70-year career.

To aid social distancing, advance booking for timed admission is essential.

Before visiting we advise that you read the information on our Admissions and FAQ pages, so you know what to expect from your visit.
