The Lightbox

Chobham Road, Woking, Surrey, GU21 4AA 01483 737 800

We say

One of the Southeast's most impressive and modern art spaces, the Lightbox boasts three galleries that host an eclectic selection of touring expeditions that revolve regularly. It also hangs on-loan pieces from major museums and galleries around Britain and further afield. Works on display include pieces by internationally renowned artists, and recent exhibitions have included 'Renoir in Britain', the Ingram Collection and the Getty Images Archive of Hollywood Photographs. On a more permanent basis, the Lightroom houses an exhibit on the History of Woking, which is worth a look. The Lightbox fosters art as a participatory as well as a spectator sport though, running regular workshops for aspiring artists of all ages, from under 5s to adults, and there's a number of interactive displays. With free entry, it also provides a chill-out space for people who just want to take a break, and there's good coffee and tasty cakes on offer in the canalside café.
