The Galleries


Each season, the galleries host a diverse programme of exhibitions. Showing art works from the permanent collection and archives at Farleys, the works of Lee and Roland’s artist friends and the works of visiting, contemporary artists. In so doing, we continue the legacy of Lee Miller and Roland Penrose, as creators and as supporters of emerging, contemporary artists.

Before becoming Farleys Gallery in 2006, the 19th century barn saw many previous incarnations, evidenced by the re-purposed oak beams and the variations in wall construction. During the harvest and when it was still part of the farm, it was filled with machinery and sacks of grain. Later, the barn became the farm workshop until the agricultural machinery became too big to fit inside.

The Lee Miller Gallery opened in July 2020, as a new exhibition space in a former warehouse building. The airy interior perfectly showcases larger exhibitions.

On our open days, in Farleys Gallery, visitors will find a selection of cold drinks, teas, coffee and locally made cakes. Also available are delicious, hand-made salad pots that are created to Lee Miller’s original recipes, and which may be enjoyed either in Farleys Gallery or the sculpture garden. Farleys visitors are also welcome to bring their own picnic.

All visits to the exhibitions in Farleys Gallery & the Lee Miller Gallery may be booked in advance or on the door on the day. Your ticket will include entry to the sculpture garden. If you also wish to visit the house you will need a house tour ticket instead and this should be done online in advance, as places are limited.
