  • Nice gallery, some very interesting well laid out exhibitions in here from artists you wouldn't normally get the opportunity to see. Not too busy I visited on a Sunday afternoon and didn't have to fight to look at the art. Book shop is very well stocked and there is a nice cafe for coffee and bites to eat once you are finished.
  • Great gallery with some interesting exhibitions on, and a decent book shop on site. There's also a café serving food, staff are helpful. Worth checking the website to see what's on as not all exhibitions are free.
  • I went to see the Dust exhibition which is thought provoking meditation on photography and art. However Trickle Down Theory exhibition is a must see and terrific. Do not miss Rodins Thinker re- imagined with the head of a goat. The cafe is as good as the art.
  • Great little gallery in an up and coming area of London. Easy to find and get to. Well worth the visit.
  • Beautifull building.modern art exhibitions. need to be ready for it. part of the exhibitions are for free.
