Watts Gallery

Watts Gallery in the village of Compton, near Guildford, Surrey, has made it on to the shortlist for the 10th annual Art Fund Prize, worth £100.000 (CLICK). The gallery, which is dedicated to the art of Victorian painter George Frederic Watts, reopened last year after a £10m restoration. The others shortlisted are the Hepworth Wakefield, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and Exeter's Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery. The winner will be announced on 19 June. Tip: the day to visit Watts Gallery is a Tuesday, when entry is only £2, instead of £6.50 (CLICK).

The gallery building itself looks like a work of art.
