Stumbled upon this when travelling elsewhere as it’s next to Aldgate East tube station and thought I’d look in. Good exhibition. Although, I wasn’t blown away, with free admission I can’t complain as it was still a good experience. Fantastic book shop too- certainly the...More

Have visited before and really enjoyed myself. But today only spent a total of 20 minutes in the free exhibitions. There was a queue in a dark room for the surrealism models and lots of moans from visitors who didn't realise people were queuing (we...More

Despite its no admission fee, there is really nothing really appealing about visiting the inside of this gallery. LONDON is loaded with great, free museums and galleries and this is not one of them! If you are an avid book collector, the book store is...More

Visited this small but interesting gallery while staying in the area recently. I didn't have a lot of time so didn't get to see the Elmsted & Dragsted exhibits which sounded interesting, if a little pricey. The 'surreal science' was the highlight for me but...More

I saw the Elmgren/Dragsted exposition - very good as well as good use of the building. The one room with one single Pollock painting had been enough reason to visit the gallery in itself. Good museum café as well.

My friend and I came here for the pool installation. We loved the quirkiness of the exhibits (underpants, cash points and wax babies for example) and had a great afternoon inside this interesting place.

This is a small size gallery. We spotted it while taking our walking tour of London Graffiti. Free entry except to some galleries with tickets. They provide classes and display work of their students . Good place for art lovers.

Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world
class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to
be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of
Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the
Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious
legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour
groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden
squares, these days you're more likely to catch a
