  • Lovely staff. Its around a 6/7 min walk at the back of kings cross station. Half price ticket. If you are a lover of stationary you will love it here 
  • It's small but it's amazing. Their exhibitions are really interesting and it's great to have a place where you can see original illustrations. You can see Quentin Blake's drawings of BFG and it's cool...  read more »
  • The context is definitely interesting (Granary Square, gleeful pedestrians and the subject of considerable architectural interventions) but in itself the Museum proved a bit disappointing ... visited on the occasion of temporary devoted to illustrations of BFG Dahl (one room), the General gallery dedicated to the works of Blake, was closed to the public, while we could visit another temporary Soviet illustration for children and young people. The ticket price is quite high considered the offer. Tiny shop interior, no cafeteria (selection though the square), bathrooms inside found closed without explanation. Overall significant shortcomings ...

  • Went on a school trip to see Winne the Pooh drawings. Afterwards the class created a popup book and had their lunch downstairs. Staff were knowledgeable and inspiring.
  • Little space, but some lovely work by a great artist
  • There is a small but great art book shop, gallery and a very nice area full of arty people.
  • Writing at the very, very beginning of House of Illustration's first public events programme, there's already great promise in the air. Their Housewarming season opened with talks from established illustrators, workshops and screenings as well as a day-long illustrators' fair. Rachel Lillie is their first Illustrator-in-Residence and who is documenting the gallery and activities as they take shape. The 'world's first gallery and education space devoted to celebrating and promoting illustration in all its forms' launches with its first exhibition on the work of Quentin Blake in July. Look forward to an important new cultural destination in London.
  • I loved the Quentin Blake exhibition so much that i now volunteer here, they currently have the Paula Rego/Honoré Daumier that consists of lithographs and etchings and the paddington bear exhibition. The exhibitions are ticketed as its a self funded gallery and Quintin Blake is one of the founders. creating a platform for illustration. Adult tickets for everything is £7 atm concession £5 pounds
