The whole building is just an experience not to be missed, but please remember that whatever exhibition is on give yourself plenty of time just to savour the surround's it is well worth it.

Places should be interesting and enlightening. Bits of tat called Art are a waste of time. Staff looked like they were going to have heart failure everytime a child went near anything.

Always interesting exhibitions but the cafe is usually outstanding.I had a humble bacon butty and a coffee.The butty was splendid and far superior to many of the local student takeaways and pubs.

Spent a maximum of 5 minutes at the gallery seeing the 'We Face Forward' exhibition. Was not worth the 20 minute walk down Oxford Road. Very small gallery. Free admission but not worth visiting unless you are staying nearby.

Was a bit pretentious and was there to research my cousins coursework (she lives in Essex) and was not allowed to take photographs
