The Gallery in the Park

Art and nature combine at the Whitworth, inside and out

The Gallery in the Park

Our recent development has not only seen the gallery double in size – it has fully integrated it into the park we call home. An art garden designed by Sarah Price, sculpture terrace and orchard garden, alongside new spaces that embrace the park, such as our landscape gallery, learning studio and the café in the trees, all reflect this beautiful setting.

Our relationship to the great outdoors isn't limited to plants and gardens. At the Whitworth, we take the inside out via a programme of free events that explore art and nature, with activities such as Welly Walks, messy play sessions (inspired by the natural world) and self-guided trails around the park. And with the support of the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, we have also re-imagined the idea of a park keeper for 21st-century Manchester: our Cultural Park Keeper brings art, nature and people together through a programme of year-round, outdoor activities – for adults and families, and for health and wellbeing.
