  • Small museum but fascinating. The Gerald Scarfe exhibition worth the visit. Ends Feb 10th though. I didn't know he did so many stage production designs. All the rooms had interesting exhibits. The sho...  more »
  • A small museum with a limited number of rooms but what is there is of a high standard. The Gerald Scarfe work, the reason why we went, is thought provoking and shows the artist's ability to work acros...  more »

  • Small museum that you can finish browsing it in 10 mins. Not worth the price. I expected to see more stories of Quentin Blake or more display of his drawings but the the postcards there turn out showed more than what is in the exhibition.
  • Love it! Small gallery but very interesting! The surrounding is amazing as well and they do offer free guide tour on the first Saturday of the month. Which I didn't know and was a surprise! Loved it!
  • Very small space but excellent curation
  • Beautiful place, lovely staff, excellent event!
  • The only good thing they had was some old illustrations. A huge room had nothing in it, only a few so called chine type tiles even a toddler could do better. Total waste of MONEY and time. My art student daughter was highly disappointed.

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.
