Guided tours

The Victoria Gallery and Museum remains open to visitors as usual. However, the University has taken the decision to cancel or postpone all University led public events until the end of April 2020. Thereafter, events will remain under review.

The health and wellbeing of our students, staff and visitors is our highest priority and while we realise that the cancellation of events will cause some inconvenience and disappointment, this temporary measure is aimed at ensuring that our response to the current situation remains responsible and informed by the latest public health advice and expertise. We regret that the University cannot be held liable for any loss or damage, including but not limited to travel and accommodation costs, arising from this event cancellation.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

Please note the tours listed below will not be available in March & April 2020.


YouTube Tours

We also offer a few short videos on our YouTube Channel so if you cannot get to the VG&M, you can still watch shorter video clips relating to our history, architecture and exhibitions.
More videos will be added to this page as they are uploaded to our YouTube Channel.
