I was thrilled to find the Tullie Art Gallery, Carlise was home to some fabulous Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood paintings, most notably "The Death of Lady Macbeth" (1875) a pencil drawing by Dante Gabriel Rossetti. The museum and art gallery also has an amazing original William De Morgan tiled floor made of Romanesque-styled tiles which are truely a sight to see.
I highly recommend this quiet art gallery for anyone who enjoys looking at wonderful art in beautiful surroundings. The garden itself on entering the gallery gates is full of botanical plants and trees which are glorious. There is also a lovely place to eat in the museum building just next door so you can have lunch before the gallery or afternoon tea afterwords – a wonderful day out indeed.
