    Amazing gallery
    Just been to see Brian Clarke's exhibition, and his work was absolutely stunning . I would be happy to hqve any of the work at my home, especially the screens. We also like the architecture of the museum. The gallery is free, so every time we go, we are amazed that it is not busier

    Brian Clarke Exhibition - Awesome
    A visit to the Brian Clarke exhibition was simply awesome. It was really interesting to see the various techniques and has inspired me to try some at our stain glass window evening class. The Gallery, only 0.7 mile from Vauxhall and ideal for this type of art with all the staff welcoming and knowledgeable.

    Brilliant modern art gallery 🌞
    This modern art jewel off the beaten path was created by famous Damien Hirst ... himself! Great architecture, nice building. Friendly staff at the entrance (security as well as ladies at the desk), also respectful staff on the different floors. No entrance fee 🤗 The actual Brian Clarke exhibition "A great light" is outstanding with a real "WOW-factor"! Large scale stained glass creations 👌 Not very busy which surprised us, we could really enjoy this overwhelming art exhibition. Don't miss the " pharmacy 2"! An art project by Damien Hirst, kind of "café" with its "medicine cabinets" etc . Very special place which invits you to sit down, chill and enjoy ... It is not a real café, but you can get something to drink/snack from a vending machine/selfservice. Newport Street Gallery is a hidden gem, an oasis away from the hustle&bustle!

It was interesting to see the variety of techniques used, and some of the pieces were stunning, but many (the heraldry!!) were not to my taste. I would also have liked some more information. Some of the pieces were not covered in the tiny booklet, and there were no explanatory panels next to the artworks. To be honest, I enjoyed looking around the café much more.

An exhibition solely of his own work..just superb. If you are a fan, you cant miss this. The gallery itself is such a delight, shame the cafe is shut though. 50 of his own works and laid out with plenty of space so you can appreciate them.

This is a dont miss.

The Newport Gallery is a very spacious gallery. The walls are immaculately white which allows artworks to stand out. When we went, the artworks on display were just huge abstract paintings of bold colors but not being an artist I did not understand what the paintings were about. There were no titles nor descriptions for the paintings. It would have helped if there were some. The good thing about this gallery is that it is free and accessible to the public.

Rather isolated, but if you make the effort you'll find a good size gallery with 6 big rooms, friendly staff and a nice presentation. I liked the stained glass exhibition there.

Blonde worker with glasses on 2nd floor absolutely awful. Came on 29th of September 2022. Will add photos of her. She should be fired. She was absolutely horrible ruined my experience and took the mick out of me having photos. Shouted at us saying we were too close to the artwork and we were know where near it. She then watched us the whole time. Very uncomfortable and then told all the other memebers of staff to watch us. DONT BOTHER EVER COMING TO THIS GALLERY.

I love visiting this art venue. I have never seen it busy and it always has really interesting exhibitions in this beautiful space. I'm almost hesitant to say more in case its gets busy

Visited the gallery on Fri 1st Dec - we received a warm welcome upon arrival.
The information provided to us was also helpful. I really love the gallery esp. it's approach, the facilities and the layout.
This is our 2nd visit since it opened, we don't live in London but we enjoyed it so much the first time we returned.
The exhibition itself I found confusing and challenging but fascinating!!!
I read the leaflet provided which totally didn't help!! I spoke with several members of staff who were all very engaging, but it still didn't help me to understand the pieces.
All the same, I enjoyed the collection and the experience, well worth a visit!!!

This is a ‘must’ visit if you come to London and want to avoid the crowd in the many galleries and museums in central London. This is one of those fantastic ‘secret’ place that is mainly visited by Londoners and Damian Hirst’s fans; however, please be aware that at the current exhibition (Dan Colen) and the previous 4 didn’t showcase ANY of Hirst’ gallery, so keep this is mind.

Dan Colen’s exhibition is probably my favourite of the exhibitions that until now has been shown in the gallery; however, this is a very architectural interesting and unique building as well; it won the RIBA Stirling Prize 2016, RIBA National Award 2016 and RIBA London Award 2016.

It is around 10 minutes-walk from Vauxhall station; however, my recommendation is to walk on the riverside from Vauxhall station; turn right on Black Prince Road and then left on Newport Street, as you will also have the chance to visit the Beaconsfield Gallery; if you enjoy contemporary art.

This is a fantastic venue to show some incredible art and all down to the generosity of D Hirst.

He didn't have to do this but I am glad he did. With so much to show of his private collection and other artists I am sure, this is a wonderful space and place to visit.

It's a must see for any London visitor or resident.
