Situated beside the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, this beautifully restored former flour mill, has been transformed into a very modern contemporary art gallery. The exhibition spaces are spread out over 5 floors, with the installations changing regularly. Its a bright, airy gallery, with friendly, helpful staff. The viewing box and balcony are worth a visit, with a fantastic view of the River Tyne and bridges. The Children's area is a lovely, colourful fun space and there are a variety of activities organised, with children and families in mind. From Toddler time, special activities connected to current exhibitions, as well as working with mainstream and SEN schools throughout Gateshead.
