The Harley Foundation
With a National Art Pass you get
The more you see, the more we do.
The National Art Pass lets you enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, while raising money to support them.
Home to the historic Portland Collection of fine and decorative art, the gallery also hosts exhibitions featuring leading contemporary artists.
The Harley Foundation was designed by local architect Leo Godlewski and constructed within the ruins of the Welbeck Estate gasworks. The gasworks were originally built in 1860 by the 5th Duke of Portland to light his network of underground tunnels and apartments. After the switch to electric the gasworks became redundant and the building was used for storage from 1928 until 1990. The gallery opened in 1994 after a three and a half year building project.
