What people are saying:

The East Asian Art Museum hidden in the corner of the square next to the east side of the Crescent Tower can be regarded as the largest exhibition hall reflecting the art of the Far East in the entire southwestern region of England. The building with a small facade was temporarily repaired at the end of 2018, but the porcelain inside is still very exquisite, if you have time, you can really take a look.

    An absolute gem!
