Why locals recommend it
You have to ring a bell to get inside, where you’ll find a maze of spaces including a garden, a beautiful section of canal, and—up a really steep staircase—a room with amazing views of the city. They stage thoughtfully curated exhibitions of some of my favourite artists, including Grayson Perry and Yayoi Kusama. While you’re there, also check out the cutting-edge art at the Parasol Unit next door.
Tips from locals
The exhibition space spans two floors and the gallery is almost unique in London for having its own landscaped garden, overlooking Regent's Canal.
Shows the work of established and emerging artists from the USA, Europe and Asia in an exhibition space close to the financial heart of London.
