The largest of the White Cube gallery's London sites, providing more than 5440 m2 (58,000 sq ft) of interior space on a site of 1.7 acres (74,300 sq ft). The building dates from the 1970s and was primarily used as a warehouse before the current refurbishment.
White Cube Bermondsey was designed by Casper Mueller Kneer Architects who are based in London and Berlin. The building includes three principal exhibition spaces, substantial warehousing, private viewing rooms, an auditorium and a bookshop. The "South Galleries" provide the principal display area for White Cube's expanding programme of significant exhibitions. Three smaller galleries, collectively known as the "North Galleries", feature an innovative new programme of exhibitions. In addition, at the centre of the building, there is a gallery of 81m2 entitled "9 x 9 x 9". An auditorium will allow White Cube to present an education programme, artists’ films and lectures.

It has free entry. It's large warehouse space is divided into several (but not too many) exhibition areas.

Lovely almost futuristic space and design. It's something I haven't seen much of in terms of gallery space in London. Purely white and minimalistic. I love it for that.
In terms of exhibitions it can vary wildly and be random but keep a look out and you might catch a gem. Gets plus points for being on a cool street for food and coffee and near river at that for views.more
Pretty simple space, showing contemporary art. They use their simple rooms well, with art that literally climbs the walls. Check their site to see what's on display.more
They're really strict about food and drink in here. But I totally get it - those white walls are pristine as heck. But don't think that this is just any fuddy duddy gallery - it's modern art everywhere to shock and confuse you. I liked it and loved interpreting the art on display. There are some really interesting things going on here, but since I'm not an artist, I'm not ready to comment. In...more
The owners of the White Cube gallery have taken the "white cube" theory of hanging art on white walls literally. This is the third gallery of this name, after Hoxton Square (unfortunately closed) and Masons Yard in Mayfair. The sheer size of this converted warehouse is impressive in its own right, and I particularly love the 9x9x9 cubic space at its heart - a true white cube!
