  • Really enjoy going here. Exhibitions change a lot. Nice variety of watercolours and prints. Staff are quiet and introverted which is ok, they let us quietly get on with it. They have a nice little boo...  more »

  • Small gallery promoting new artists. Admission is free so pop in on the way to Tate Modern.
  • Small but great gallery with free toilet and bookshop too
  • A small gallery close to the Tate Modern which sells contemporary art in themed collections at reasonable prices. Fun to pop into from time to time and take a look at what's hanging.
  • First time in that lovely little gallery...☺just next to Tate Modern. I saw a Giant Beautiful Watercolour Poster/Banner and it draw me inside.😍 Haven't seen something like that before. The watercolours were amazing, the details, colours, educational idea and size left me speechless (only till Sunday 26th June).Thank you. Will be back soon. Ps note to the owners do put poster/banner outside you have a big competition on your left
  • This is a real gem sat right next to the Tate Modern. Whilst we all really appreciate the Tate Modern and what it does and the artistic intent and drive. The Bankside Gallery is a totally refreshing "take on Art" and the way it has to be. It was opened in 1980 by the Queen and is a registered Charity. They regularly present exhibitions by members of the Royal Watercolour Society and the Royal Society of Painter - Printmakers. It is vital we support such places as the Bankside is actively engaged in the educational sector and helps along young people who need their guidance and help. Whilst I love the Tate Modern the Bankside Gallery holds a special place in my heart and mind. Please go and visit you will enjoy the experience.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
