The Flora Twort Gallery is an art gallery in Petersfield, Hampshire, England, dedicated to the work of Flora Twort.

The gallery is located beside St. Peter's Church, just off the town's market square.

Flora Twort died in 1985 leaving her cottage, studio and examples of her work to Hampshire County Council. It was run as a museum and restaurant by HCC until 2008.

In 2009 the gallery and its collections were transferred to the Petersfield Museum Trust. The gallery displays examples from the Bedales Historic Costume Collection dating from 1720, and pieces of work by the artist Flora Twort. There is also a temporary exhibition space which displays collections from professional artists and community groups.
