  • Amazing experience - allow hours to enjoy. Marvellous range of art, sculpture etc. housed in an impressive building and displayed perfectly. Do not rush simply savor and enjoy. Excellent cafe too - take the opportunity to sit outside and enjoy a coffee if you can.
  • Went here to see a photograph exhibition. It was pretty good although very busy, so at times you were waiting to see things. Strangely enough you had to book time slots, so I thought that over crowding would have been avoided. Anyway a lovely place, really easy to find right on the Thames embankment
  • Absolutely love this gallery for the exhibitions and fabulous interior. The cafe in wonderfully peaceful and a great place to meet friends for a catch up. I feel like it's one of the most stress free places in London. Very well stocked gift shop and I have always managed to find something wonderful for my loved ones. A must see if you are in the area!
  • Fantastic collection of British art covering past, recent past and present. Always find something new to see. Good exhibitions ab it costly but in line with other top galleries. Great (but pricey) restaurant. Cafe environment could be better although food and service is good.
  • Displays antique paintings, such a great place to discover so many beautiful paintings made back in 1700. Plus it’s free. I recommend visiting it if you’re a fan of art.
