  • Great place for the views and enjoyed the art. Especially the mirrors top and bottom of stairs. Interesting stuff in the shop, clean toilets free entry. Did not eat there.
  • A lovely place for a day out. On the second floor there is a play space for kids - it's very spacious with lots to do. On Sat and Sun from 2-4 they have free craft sessions for the kids. The cafe on the ground floor is only ok. The menu is pretty limited.
  • Exhibition can be a bit hit or miss but the building is a great space and cafe and shop are well worth a look.
  • Largest side devoted to contemporary art in the UK. Gorgeous building. Great restaurant and cafes.
  • Great building, some avant garde exhibitions, depends on your preference. Gift shop + cafe. Good restaurant on top floor with views across river.
