  • Amazing experience - allow hours to enjoy. Marvellous range of art, sculpture etc. housed in an impressive building and displayed perfectly. Do not rush simply savor and enjoy. Excellent cafe too - take the opportunity to sit outside and enjoy a coffee if you can.
  • Went here to see a photograph exhibition. It was pretty good although very busy, so at times you were waiting to see things. Strangely enough you had to book time slots, so I thought that over crowding would have been avoided. Anyway a lovely place, really easy to find right on the Thames embankment
