York Art Gallery to undergo major refurbishment

Yorkbuildingsurveyors.co.uk – Working in partnership with Ushida Findlay Architects, the York Museums Trust have launched into a £6m refurbishment scheme to restore one of the most recognisable and historic buildings in York.

Situated near the banks of the River Ouse in one of York’s biggest attractions, a beautiful open area flanked by York Crown Court and Clifford’s Tower, the Art Gallery is a major source of tourism in York. Work should begin soon on creating a new ‘secret gallery’ and opening up a thus far hidden area of York, to become a new landscape garden and arts area.
