  • Not sure about the art, I didn't really get it but went here for a work networking event. It was literally the hottest venue, most of us left early. No air con. Seemed a small venue too, couldn't imag...  more »

  • Cool gallery enjoyed going there. The architecture outside and in is Well suited. The experience was good and the art work at the time of my visit was visually impacting. Two hours Max's and there is also a gift shop and restaurant.
  • The gallery is quite nice though not very big, there's a lift that sings and also handy in case you're not very mobile. The cafe was.. disappointing. The antipasto platter is good value for money (£12) and the teas are nice, but the service is very unprofessional. Tables weren't cleared properly and we specifically had to ask for the table itself to get cleaned. We had to ask for a menu several times and ended up grabbing one ourselves. Nobody came to take our order, it took ages to get someone to come who was all surprised we wanted to order. Then getting the bill was very confusing. All in all it took so long it messed up our schedule for the day. I would be pretty annoyed if I was the cafe manager, because there seemed to be plenty of staff so you'd expect it all to run smoothly, but maybe they're all people who've not been working in a cafe for very long. :/ It's a shame because the cafe looks nice and the food is good.
  • Lovely place. Nice and clean with friendly staff. Some exhibitions are better than others but it's a question of personal taste. Free entry.
  • The installations were absolutely amazing and thought provoking. The staff were all wonderful and loved to talk about the artworks, whilst maintaining respect for other interpretations. The atmosphere is calm and the lack of barriers (at least for the Roger Hiorns installation) allows one to feel a part of the artwork. The small shop has fairly priced products that can also be seen on their website. The architecture is simply stunning, allowing the building to simultaneously fade away yet enhance the works. Overall, a great place to visit.
  • Small gallery but has some interesting things to see. Staff are very knowledgeable and engage well with the public. It also has a great cafe and outdoor terrace.
