the gallery
Welcome to a our gallery in the centre of historic Swaffham, a traditional market town on one of the main routes through to the scenic North Norfolk coast. Why not stop for a coffee break and visit this recent addition to Norfolk's wide range of galleries. We are easy to find in the Market Place next to the impressive Assembly Rooms. The Gallery is aptly named being designed around the beautiful feature brick fireplace flanked by comfortable leather tub chairs giving it a warm and homely feel, perfect for visualising how a piece of art work would fit into your own home. Above the fire, on the chimney breast we feature our artist painting of the month.

The Arts Lounge is a stunning contemporary exhibition space bringing together an eclectic, bespoke and unique mix of talented artisans and their work which includes not only paintings and prints, but sculptures, mosaics, photography, glass, wood carvings, ceramics, jewellery, woodturning and other artistic creations. The whole gallery is lit by ice cool LED lights, giving the gallery a bright airy feel complimenting the daylight from the large front window.

It is also an art space where artisans can hire a space to exhibit their work, for a minimum of one month, with the added benefit of no hanging fees, no admin fees and no commission fees, all you pay for is your space with a wide range to choose from. Click on exhibiting here or in the menu bar for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.

Summer Opening times
Open Tuesday - Saturday 9.30am - 5pm
Closed Sunday, Monday


We also intend to remain open in the evening when special events are taking place to attract the public into the gallery as an added benefit to our normal opening hours, so keep checking back by clicking events here or in the menu bar.

Wheelchair users can access the Arts Lounge gallery into the themed lounge area where paintings and other works of art are on display, but there is limited access further into the gallery. Staff are more than willing to help in any way they can so that wheelchair users have a pleasing experience in the gallery and pieces of art work can be brought to them to view in the lounge area at any time.
