The Walker Art Gallery houses one of the largest art collections in England, outside of London. It is part of the National Museums Liverpool group and is promoted as “the National Gallery of the North.”

The Walker’s collection includes European art from 1300 – 1900, 18th and 19th-century British art, including a significant collection of Victorian painting and many Pre-Raphaelite works, 20th-century works, and a considerable sculpture collection. The collection of decorative arts covers a wide range, from Gothic ivories to British ceramics up to the present day.
