The Young Gallery can be found in Salisbury Library. It brings together five separate collections including the Young Collection, the John Creasey Museum Collection and the Edgar Barclay Collection. As well as those collections there are four galleries newly refurbished to international standards which now attract touring shows of international significance.

The gallery was re-named the Young Gallery in the recognition of the bequest by Edwin Young that established the original gallery in 1913 and today it still displays his work capturing rural life in Salisbury, as well as pictures by other leading watercolourists.

The John Creasey Museum collection includes crime and thriller novels, political ephemera and Modern Art. The Edgar Barclay collection displays his paintings of Stonehenge and, the Mick Maslen collection is a large group of photographs donated to the gallery by Mick himself.

The Young Gallery also holds a selection of etchings, wood engravings, sketches and teaching aids devised by Robin Tanner relating to the teaching of design & handwriting.

The Young Gallery is free to enter.
