hi I have been real busy since I did close the doors in the Melville, I actually relocated to the Guard House at the entrance to the yard and wanted to delete this tripadvisor page. That seems to be impossible so I have tried to...More

Not sure what is going on but this gallery has moved from it's prime site by the basin to the other side across the road from Seco. Word is that tenants have been moved from the Brew House to make way for a wacking great...More

Apparently this place is on the move across the Royal William Yard to the prestigious Slaughterhouse building which so recently contained an important chunk of the Brit Art thing a few months ago. Good luck to any gallery business but like some other reviewers I...More
