  • We spent a great evening at the gallery. The free exhibitions were all interesting. Kentridge - which had a charge - was really worth a visit. The shop is a little underwhelming, but has a few interes...  read more »
  • This is one of the most impressive exhibitions we have recently seen. Usually I'm not very keen on video art, but this one is different. We were really absorbed into the screens of these long "clips" ...  read more »
  • This small but interesting gallery was opened in 1901 and it has a long history of exhibiting the works of contemporary artists and other exhibitions concerning the local community. I like coming here...  read more »
  • The gallery is Worth the trip across London if you like modern art. I found that I lost myself in the gallery for about an hour just wondering. When I visited the gallery was not busy so never felt that I had to rush. There is also a lovely coffee shop across the road called Aldgate coffee house
  • Peaceful place to visit, nicely laid out galleries, exhibitions regularly updated.
  • Electronic superhighway exhibition was great fun. Good for the geeks. I pop back every month or so to see what's on - never disappointed.
  • Beautiful gallery with a consistent run of good exhibitions, both free and paid. Nice gift shop and cafe for a quick stop after or before your culture intake.
  • Book ordered for delivery. No charge stated on invoice,but days later additional postage demanded This was refused,and order cancelled. Failure to make good the order was provocative and foolish in that the Bookshop lost the sale (better even .to absorb the postal charge and take profit from sale of the book) and permanently lost customer goodwill. Clearly the Gallery (presusmably publically funded) has no business 'nous'. Added 21/10/15 After a month,despite cancellation of the order NO REFUND RECEIVED. GALLERY MADE NO REPLY TO ENQUIRY ABOUT THIS. HUGE DIFFICULTIES. C USTOMERS STRONGLY ADVISED NEVER TO ORDER BOOKS FROM THIS GALLERY SINCE COMPLETELY UNTRUSTWORTHY.
