REVIEW: Seaside Snaps at Scarborough Art Gallery

Scarborough Art Gallery

Seaside Snaps is the latest exhibition to grace the walls of Scarborough Art Gallery.

On till 21 June 2015, this really is well worth checking out, especially if you are a Scarborian. There are loads of old pictures on display of Scarborough through the years.

Do you remember Gala Land, The Royal Opera House, and the outdoor pool? Well come and reminisce about the old days and see what’s changed over the years, and what has stayed the same.

Some old photographs don't look any different from today, such as The Castle, The Grand Hotel, and Spa Bridge, whereas places like The Floral Hall are long gone.

Of course, you don't have to be a local to enjoy this exhibition, as anyone who has ever loved Scarborough will find plenty here to interest them.

You can take a selfie of yourself on the old pier, and if you have any old photographs, you can send them in for display. If you look closely you might even see a picture of me on the wall!

Seaside Snaps is on the first floor of the gallery, and on the ground floor you will find some more traditional art, with paintings by Grimshaw, Roe and Carter on display. There is a shop, a small café and toilets, but no disabled access to the first floor.

Admission to the gallery is £3 which also covers The Rotunda, and is valid at both venues for a year. Under 18's are free. Opening times are 10am to 5pm Tuesdays to Sundays. Open Bank Holiday Mondays. Do pay this delightful gallery a visit, you won't regret it.
