    The National Gallery

    Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 5DN United Kingdom
    131 reviews

    Beautiful gallery with a wonderful array of works! Including that of Van Gough! I went in only because I had time to kill, but I was really thankful that I did. It is a thoroughly well organised gallery with very relevant and interesting information to accompany each painting.

    A bold setting for some of the world's most striking contemporary art. Opened in 2000, this former power station continues to rank in the U.K.'s top three tourist attractions - and best of all, aside from the temporary exhibitions, it's free to visit. Top tip: Tours for Two - for £50 each you can arrange to be taken on a ...

    Victoria and Albert Museum

    Cromwell Road, London SW7 2 United Kingdom
    71 reviews

    The V&A is likely to have a wing dedicated to whatever floats your art and design boat, as well as a brilliant selection of rotating special exhibitions. The building itself is gorgeous, with a courtyard made for contemplating the fabulous-ness of your life and tired-ness of your feet. Like most museums in London, it's also free.

    Sir John Soane's Museum

    13 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London, United Kingdom
    16 reviews

    One of the best kept secrets in London. Fantastic little art museum with Hogarth's 'Rake's Progress' cycle and a terrific collection of art and architecture of Greece. Soane was an eccentric to be sure, but there was something 'very' English about his love affair with the Mediterranean.

    28 Shad Thames, London SE1 2 United Kingdom
    8 reviews

    The Design Museum and shop are situated (until they move in 2015) in Wapping, in London's historic dock area. This area of the city is steeped in history, each building has a thousand stories to tell as most of them are converted wharfs and warehouses, built when London held the world's biggest port. Founded by Terrence Conran 25 years ago ...

    Queen's Gallery

    England, Buckingham Palace, SW1A 1AA, United Kingdom
    11 reviews

    When we visited, there was an incredible exhibit on Victoria and Albert. The gallery itself is a gorgeous yet still intimate space that lends itself well to this type of exhibit.

    White Cube - Hoxton Square

    48 Hoxton Square, London, United Kingdom
    4 reviews

    It doesn't get much more London than this. Once at the bleeding edge of the Young British Artists movement, these days Jay Jopling's gallery demonstrates that even the alternative is mainstream, but even so you can expect shows from artists who continue to shock and provoke. The opening of this space in April 2000 has long since been seen as ...

    National Portrait Gallery

    St. Martin's Place, London WC2H 0HE, United Kingdom
    2 reviews

    One of my favourite galleries in London. You get to appreciate the art and the history of the UK and it's the perfect size so not as exhausting as some of the other galleries in London. Also has an amazing coffee shop/restaurant with rooftop views.

    Victoria Miro

    16 Wharf Road, London, Greater London N1 7RW, United Kingdom
    2 reviews

    A commercial contemporary art gallery, Victoria Miro represents Yoyoi Kusama and Grayson Perry which, should give you an idea of the astute management of this space. The gallery is flawlessly tasteful and wears the work well, plus there is a lovely garden. Located in between Angel and Old Street the gallery may appear awkward to get to but is actually ...

    Phillips de Pury & Company

    Howick Place, London, Greater London SW1P 1BB, United Kingdom
    1 review

    The Phillips de Pury auction house, near Victoria station, occasionally hosts gallery shows and events in their beautiful, spacious halls. I find the art exhibitions to be very carefully edited, and it seems to be a small secret as it's never really crowded in there. Quite a joy to see art with so much air and space.

    Clockmakers' Museum

    Guildhall, London EC2P 2EJ, United Kingdom
    1 review

    This tiny little museum - which is free, by the way - contains over 600 clocks and time keepers, some of which are 400 years old. It's packed, wall to wall to wall to wall, with time keepers of every type and make, offering a chronology of clockmaking through the ages. They also have John Harrison's H5 marine watch (google ...

    Rivington Place

    1 Rivington Place, City of London, Greater London EC2A 3BA, United Kingdom
    1 review

    Rivington Place is a small gallery tucked away off Shoreditch High Street on the street of the same name. The curators are extremely adept at finding talented artists from South America, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, etc., who may not receive as much attention from the western world art press. The events program is very good, with lectures, films, and ...

    18 Stafford Terrace

    18 Stafford Terrace, London, W8 7BH
    1 review

    One of London's best-kept secrets and something to add to your itinerary if you want to do something which makes very few of the guidebooks. This stucco fronted Kensington mansion, also known as the Linley Sambourne House, was formerly home to Edward Linley Sambourne, cartoonist for the satirical magazine 'Punch'. It's one of the best preserved examples of a late-Victorian ...

    The Museum of Fashion and Textiles

    3 Queen Square, London, United Kingdom
    1 review

    The Museum of Fashion and Textiles is a great little museum if you're interested in the subject matter. I like the constancy of some focus on Zandra Rhodes and her print-making techniques, even as the temporary exhibitions travel from Sweden to outer space and back. A good resource for London.

    Raven Row

    56 Artillery Ln, London, Greater London E1 7LS, United Kingdom
    1 review

    Raven Row is an art gallery hosted in an old Spitalfields row house that once belonged to Huguenot silk weavers. The history of the place infuses the restored but empty upstairs rooms with a certain poignance, given the incredibly rich history of the area. The art exhibitions can be a bit obscure but are worth an occasional visit.
