Watts Gallery - Artists' Village


Watts Gallery - Artists' Village is a unique Arts & Crafts gem nestled in the Surrey Hills. At the Watts Gallery, they strive to preserve the ethos of the founders, George and Mary Watts, who believed passionately in Art for All. Families can explore the beautiful woodland grounds and enjoy a number of exciting activities every week. There are opportunities to be messy in the drop-in The Make Space workshops, every Sunday from 11am-4pm, as well as free family trails and resources available every day in the historic Watts Gallery and Watts Studios.
