  • The whitechapel Gallery is a place of custody, or are exposed artists of exception, watch the programming before go. At this time william Kentridge, artist South African talent. Outdated and surprising artistic composition with references to the lights, Dadaism brothers. Not to miss. Expo price 11.5 pounds. The Museum is free. Eventually the tea room and go for a walk to Spitafield market.

  • An amazing contemporary art gallery in East London, the best one in that area. Many exhibitions always on at the same time, changing every three/four months. Lots of events, projections, courses and conferences as well. Especially lively on a Thursday night, when it's open late (until 9pm).
  • Behind that distinctive and idiosyncratic facade this gallery the stuff of legend. Always a stimulating destination that justifies repeated visits. Top-notch, you'll be back.
  • Small but highly interesting gallery. Always changing. Always fresh. The content is generally modern and up to date
  • The East Ends premier art gallery, it's completely free, has some great shows and has also got a nice cafe
  • Small cute gallery with interesting modern photos and installations. It is free but you have to pay for some special exhibits
