Welcome to Chapel Gallery
West Lancashire Borough Council welcomes you to the Chapel Gallery. Our diverse programme brings innovative contemporary art and craft to the region from across the UK, while also supporting locally based artists in the development of their careers.

There are plenty of activities to keep young minds absorbed and, with our Café and Contemporary Craft Shop, the gallery is the perfect place to visit on a day out.
