Visiting with children

Whether you have tiny tots or teenagers, there's plenty to do with the family.

Children and young people under the age of 18 get free entry, making us a great choice for a family day out in Chichester.

Free family resource

Our free family activities encourage children to look more closely at our paintings – and have fun while doing so!

Pick up your free set of Pallant I Spy cards from the Welcome Desk when you arrive and use them to find particular works in our major exhibition Julian Trevelyan: The Artist and his World. How many things you can spot beginning with the letters B, F and S?



There is level access to enter the Gallery via our main entrance on North Pallant and the entrance through the courtyard garden on East Pallant.

All areas of the Gallery are accessible by lift.

Toilets and Baby Change

There are two accessible toilets, a left hand and a right hand transference on the ground floor. The right hand transference toilet also houses a shower and baby changing unit.

Eating and drinking

The Pallant Cafè serves a range of light meals, snacks and hot and cold drinks. When the weather is fine, families are welcome to picnic on the garden wall bench in the Courtyard Garden.

Breast-feeding is allowed anywhere in the Gallery and many of our rooms have benches.

Children's books

Pallant Bookshop sells a range of children’s books that will help you to nurture their creativity.
