  • Always changing so the kind of place that is worth going back to see every few months. Always exciting!  more »
  • Very interesting place to see old, antique stuff which were brought to this place to sell in order to covert them to hard currencies for the owner.  more »

  • The place is like palace and the staff are so helpful. Almost always have viewings on, so always a good place to stop by and enjoy the masterpieces.
  • I went to see the George Michael Exhibition before it was auctioned off for charity (a worthy act from a worthy man). Pity a U.K. museum couldn’t have taken the complete collection as it was outstanding... The gallery/auction house is over several floors and occasionally in separate buildings. This isn’t stuffy and intimidating, staff are reassuring in their presence and friendly, as you would imagine, so if you ever see an ‘open house’ and would like to look at Pre-Sale art don’t hesitate (you might actually end up buying something too!)
