Dull sparse and thoroughly uninviting What a waste of a great facility poorly executed as a gallery visit the pallant gallery in Chichester see how a gallery should feel and look. Am ashamed to think of visitors to Southend even contemplating a visit.

Thank you for your review- we always appreciate feedback. Your comments will be passed on to management for future planning. Kind regards, Promotion and Events Team.
I always used to visit this venue at its previous venue and it was wonderful to visit it in its new venue. This new venue is great for loght and airy and it is great to walk around and enjoy the space.
