  • Check what's on, and expect to pay entrance. But great range of exhibitions and a fab shop with good exhibition related things, and more besides. Current show is on anime 'backgrounds' and is brillian...  more »

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Superb small three-exhibit gallery dedicated to the art of illustration, near to Kings Cross, and a stone's throw from ice cream parlour Ruby Violet.
  • Cute museum, decent value as you get to see all exhibits so good way to see something you knew nothing about. In fact i know nothing about illustration in general, but enjoyed an hour or so there finding out.
  • Expensive but worth it for certain exhibitions. Check what is on before you visit.

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.
