The Visitor centre and Gallery are open 6 days a week Tuesday-Sunday 11am – 4pm.

Stylish shopping and Inspiring Arts and Crafts: Changing Art Exhibitions. Working Craftspeople side-by-side with elegant retail outlets in a stunning Grade II listed Victorian setting.

Thoresby Gallery was originally established in 1992 as a space in which to show the Pierrepont Collection. Over the years it has evolved into a busy gallery with an eclectic calendar of exhibitions. Thoresby Courtyard welcomes 80,000 visitors a year. Open seven days a week 10.30 – 5.00 the gallery always has something interesting to engage a wide audience. Thoresby Gallery’s Open Exhibitions have been encouraging local artists and providing a beautiful space in which to exhibit since the early days and now Thoresby are seeking to include all artists, both professional and amateur working in the area with regular opportunities to get involved.

Thoresby Courtyard is an imaginative conversion of a Grade 1 listed building, recently transformed into a thriving retail area including an art gallery, busy cafe and a home for working crafts people.

The Courtyard sits beside Thoresby Hall, built by the third Earl Manvers in 1860. A Victorian mansion, it has been recently renovated and is now a luxury hotel and spa open to visitors. The Courtyard and Hotel are set within several thousand acres of forest, farmland and parkland that you can explore via a series of way marked walks. The Park has been owned by the Pierrepont family since the 1600s and remains a picture of a traditional country estate.

Complementing the Courtyard retail development, the former riding hall has been restored and has become a popular venue for visiting theatre companies, wedding receptions and conferences.

The ongoing development together with a creative vision is an exciting cultural venue for visitors to the heart of North Nottinghamshire.
