We are delighted to welcome visitors to the gallery 7 days per week.  Please see details of our opening times and access info below:

Mondays – Saturdays: 10.00am – 5.30pm

Sundays: 12.00 noon – 5.00pm

We advise when visiting before 11am, and all day Monday, you use our entrance on College Lane, as the Bluecoat opening hours are Tuesday to Sunday 11am – 5pm.

We are continuing to fulfil orders from our Online Shop .


The team at the Bdc are continuing to work hard to ensure the safety of our customers and staff. We request our visitors respect each other’s space in our gallery, along with their right to wear a face covering if they so wish. We offer hand sanitiser and regularly clean high-touch surfaces.

In the meantime if there is anything you are interested in that does not currently feature online and you are unable to visit the gallery in person, please do get in touch by email at and we can help source pieces by request.
