  • Visited especially to see the guerrilla girls' exhibition, very disappointing. Now I am a fan that's why I came. But I did expect to see more than some filled in questionnaires and a 25% response rate...  more »

  • If you are an artist, the bookstore looked great. Otherwise, not a lot to see. Not in the same league with Tate Modern! We were in the area so stopped by. Would not make a special trip for this.

  • An amazing contemporary art gallery in East London, the best one in that area. Many exhibitions always on at the same time, changing every three/four months. Lots of events, projections, courses and conferences as well. Especially lively on a Thursday night, when it's open late (until 9pm).
  • Behind that distinctive and idiosyncratic facade this gallery the stuff of legend. Always a stimulating destination that justifies repeated visits. Top-notch, you'll be back.
  • Small but highly interesting gallery. Always changing. Always fresh. The content is generally modern and up to date
  • The East Ends premier art gallery, it's completely free, has some great shows and has also got a nice cafe
  • Small cute gallery with interesting modern photos and installations. It is free but you have to pay for some special exhibits
