Castlegate House Gallery is situated on the ground floor of a splendid and untouched Grade II* listed 18th Century Georgian house in the centre of the thriving Lakeland town of Cockermouth.

We’re nothing if not passionate about 20th century and contemporary British art, fuelled by many years of obsessive art collecting. Our aim is to fuel that passion in others and exhibit only what we can genuinely be enthusiastic and passionate about.

We specialise in internationally renowned artists such as Sheila Fell, Percy Kelly, Geoffrey Key, Carel Weight and Ken Howard, amongst many others, but with a core and heart to the gallery that will remain firmly in the roots of northern British art. We aim to showcase exciting and talented up and coming artists also, and enjoy seeking out new talent. We also have a passion for British ceramics, and as well as early Leach and Winchcombe examples, we bring to the Gallery some of the best Studio Pottery in the UK, including the likes of Doug Fitch, Paul Young and Hannah McAndrew.

Cockermouth is a splendid western Lakeland town, filled with small independent shops and places to visit, including the world renowned Wordsworth House, the National Trust owned birthplace of William Wordsworth We look forward to welcoming you to Cockermouth and the gallery.
