Canterbury Royal Museum & Art Gallery

18 High Street

Canterbury's Art Gallery has a large and varied art exhibitions programme - contact the gallery for details of the current exhibitions.

In addition, there is a significant permanent collection at the Gallery. Grant-aid, bequest, gift and sponsorship continue to support the development of this collection, with recent acquisitions including work by Jacob Epstein, Laura Knight, Henry Moore, Carel Weight, John Ward, Fred Cuming, John Piper, Edward Ardizzone, John Bratby, Roger de Grey, JB Manson, Walter Sickert and Thomas Monnington.

Talks, visits and workshops are regularly arranged in partnership with schools and colleges to support the exhibitions programme, and with the help of practising artists to widen access and involvement.

Also included in this building is the Buffs Museum. A Branch of The National Army Museum which tells the story of The Royal East Kent Regiment, the Buffs, and its worldwide service. Uniforms, weapons, medals, sporting and leisure pursuits are all on display.

We regret there is no access possible for wheelchair users.
