  • Very nice little gem in London. the collection looks quirky and interesting and requires a bit more time to visit so I'll be going back some time soon. We also had an afternoon tea in the restaurant. The tea was delicious, the sandwiches and cakes nice. a good price quality ratio.
  • Its a good place. They have a lovely collection of pictures.... Great throwback to olden days..... Very lovely place.... Totally recommend it for a school trip or any trip....
  • Went to the Bedlam exhibit. Was amazing. The other sections were also very interesting and I enjoyed 'Medicine Man'
  • Very interesting exhibitions are held here and are mostly available for free! Highly recommended
  • Excellent gallery, nice refurb, cafe good in theory but busy and WiFi either maxed out or doesn't work...
