Why locals recommend it
This contemporary art gallery is an enormous space, and kids just love being in big, open spaces, don’t they? I really like the taste of the person who creates the shows here. The last thing I enjoyed was Rana Begum’s The Space Between, a darkened room full of light sculptures made from UV tubes of different colours and shapes—hugely enjoyable for kids. They run excellent Sunday family workshops in the galleries for 5- to 15-year-olds.
Tips from locals
Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art is an educational charity and a not-for-profit contemporary art gallery based in London. You can combine with a walk along the canal and a visit to Victoria Miro next door. Open Sundays
Unassuming gallery that's larger than it appears from outside. Drop into Sardine for a fabulous meal afterwards.

“Balfron Tower was designed by architect Ernő Goldfinger and is associated with the Brutalist style of 1960's architecture. Goldfinger himself was pleased with the design and moved into flat 130, on the 25th floor, for two months in 1968. He and his wife threw champagne parties to find out what the residents liked and disliked about his design. He applied what he learnt to his design for the similar and more famous Trellick Tower in West London.”
