Present either of these emails (printed or viewable on mobile/tablet) at our front desk to gain admission.

  • One ticket covers admission to all exhibitions open on the day.
  • There is no re-admittance.
  • Tickets are non-refundable, non-transferable and subject to our general terms and conditions.
  • Your ticket confirmation email may go to the email address linked to your Paypal account. Please contact if you do not receive it.

Half-price entry during Main Gallery changeover:

When the Main Gallery is closed for exhibition installation, tickets to the South Gallery and Quentin Blake Gallery are half-price and can be purchased in-person at the gallery.


Gift Aid

The Gift Aid price includes a voluntary 10% donation which allows us to claim back 25% of the total price paid. This small donation makes a huge difference to a charity like ours which receives no public funding – thank you! UK taxpayers only. Find out more at our Gift Aid page.
