COVID-19 Update

We want to let you know that we are temporarily closing our doors to visitors, until the COVID-19 situation improves, to protect our team and our customers. In the meantime we are switching to a fully online gallery and will be operating a normal delivery service. We appreciate that it’s always difficult to purchase art at a distance, but we want to continue to give our artists every possible outlet whilst our gallery and others are closed. Do feel free to also follow us on Facebook or Twitter. We remain ready & able to send out additional images and information about any of our artworks.

Please feel free to contact us and we look forward to welcoming you back to the gallery in better times!

A little bit about us

Welcome! The Old Courthouse Gallery in Ambleside, Lake District, is a family-owned independent art gallery with a long history of displaying superb contemporary arts. The gallery is spread across three floors of the town’s historic court building, giving us a bright and welcoming space to showcase the best arts and crafts available from the Lakes and around Britain today.

We feature a wide range of original wall art from paintings & drawings to textiles & linocuts. We also display fine wood craft & furniture, glass and sculptures in bronze & ceramic. Our jewellery section includes collections that are both beautiful and very wearable. We like to ensure that there is always a wide variety of high quality pieces at a range of prices on display. So, whether you’re a serious collector or just looking for an ideal gift or a memento of your visit you’re always welcome to pop in for a browse. Our friendly team will be happy to help!
