“Beautiful building”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Architecturally gratifying. Great space and light inside, and integrates with the surroundings really well. The permanent collection is interesting, with rather diverse work, but some great pieces of work amongst them. Some mixed shows so far. Good cafe, though very irritating that you can't visit it without paying for admission.

“Lovely New Gallery”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Very much enjoyed this Gallery's collection; some lovely pieces. And the gallery spaces are lovely too - brilliant light and terrific views out through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Most enjoyable visit. Friendly staff. Good shop. Delicious snacks in restaurant, and wonderful views from outdoor terrace.

“A little boring not really for younger familys”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

I like the idea of a nice gallery, however our 11 year old was bored VERY quickly so we ended up looking around for about 15 min, then left.

Could be good depending on what there exhibiting.

“Great for Hastings”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Architecturally bold, some interesting British C20 and C21 art, and a super cafe. On the sea front next to the lovely fishermen's shops/sheds.
Adds some sophistication to Old Hastings' mix.
