  • Combine your Brick Lane visit with a visit of this gallery, which is explorative in its nature and art (and that's what I liked). Good art well explained, makes you thing, provokes and inspires. A bit...  more »

  • 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
