    A fine exhibition of the Japanese Court housed in a thoughtful display. The exhibition is not large by any means, however is well worth a visit.

    Some nice pieces on display.

    If you have 30 minutes to spare, stop by the Mithraeum. You're put in a room to read and listen to a video about the ruins. They then allow you down into the actual ruins where you listen to some latin chants (no real context to them..) and then you're able to walk around a look at the ruins as the lights come up a bit.

    Informationally, it's not as robust as I would prefer, but definitely ask the front desk if they have a booklet. I was given one and it was helpful! They also have clean bathrooms for those of you looking for that!

    The Noel Coward Exhibition was very enjoyable with a mix of photos, costumes and theatre memorabilia charting his very illustrious life. However, many of the captions are so low that I ended up with an aching back. I understand that accessibility for wheelchair users is important but how can the exhibition designer consider thigh-level or even shin-level captions acceptable?

    This gallery has been on my to do list for a while.We visited on a sunny Saturday afternoon,we got in for free with our art passes(normally £16.50!).

    Its a small gallery,it takes about an hour to see everything,my favourite paintings are the Canalettos,they are so beautiful!

    The entrance fee is quite high so glad we have the art pass!
    Still prefer the Wallace Collection for its selection of paintings!

    Visited today for the Jennifer Packer exhibition. Free admission but you need to book your tickets on the Serpentine app in advance. If you need help, staff there will help you.

    Nice exhibition. Very useful free guide available.

    Interesting philosophy in portraiture - “making a portrait for me is wanting to do the subject justice and, if anywhere, the imagination sits in the respectful distance.”

    I like that way of thinking - quite the opposite to Graham Sutherlands approach to art and more especially to his portraiture of Churchill.

    Still life is vibrant.

    A talented artist. Great colours and inspiring art. Nice to visit this afternoon.

    I've seen every Warhol exhibit I could since the retrospective at MOCA in LA in 2002, including the recent exhibits at the Whitney and the Tate, as well as the Banksy/Warhol exhibit in Amsterdam.

    This exhibit is smaller than the LA retrospective but not to be missed, as it presents the complete series of many of Warhol's most outstanding works: a complete Mao, a complete Marilyn, the complete Muhammad Ali series, as well as a complete set of the very rarely seen Endangered Species series. And a complete Beethoven quartet, as well as a wonderful Ingrid Bergman triptych.

    It also includes his diamond dust icon series, ending with the absolutely fabulous "shadow" self-portrait. And, the complete Cowboys and Indians series. Especially interesting were his sketches and drawings from the 50s when he was working as a fashion illustrator. Don't miss the "Tattooed Lady" with his phone number in Murray Hill advertising his services.

    The gallery on two sides of New Bond Street is a lovely space and the works are beautifully exhibited. The staff were incredibly welcoming, and the man we talked to was brilliant. I learned much from him in our hour or so encounter. He was welcoming and unpretentious, while being immensely knowledgeable.

    Visited the wonderful Bridget Reilly exhibition, seeing so many large pictures was great (and mind bending). The gallery, together with the rest of the South Bank centre is worth a visit for anyone with an interest in post war architecture.

    We went to see the Gursky exhibition. and impressed it was free to get in, what is free in life these days! Didn’t take very long to get round as White Cube is a vast space but with minimal artwork on display. Exhibition was good though and some impressive images on display.

    Definitely a quaint little street I could have spent hours at. Make sure to go early day since it closes before dark. Still amazing to visit

    An exhibition solely of his own work..just superb. If you are a fan, you cant miss this. The gallery itself is such a delight, shame the cafe is shut though. 50 of his own works and laid out with plenty of space so you can appreciate them.

    This is a dont miss.

    We took a private masterclass from José at Graffik Gallery. Super patient and creative guy. Helped us find the artist in ourselves, which enhanced the experience for us. I would definitely recommend this unique experience!

    Tip: there's an amazing food market further down the street ;)

    Surprisingly brilliantly located in the middle of central West End - but hidden away! Interesting building and space for displaying art work/photographs.

    If you love history but think you've seen it all, think again. This fascinating exhibit tells a long hidden tale of kings and queens and architecture never before seen. And the view from the top of the Abbey is stunning. Go; written descriptions don't do it justice.

    An amazing little gem in a great location. Friendly staff, £5 entry, which was worth it. Some beautifully curated art. Different styles and appeal to a wide range.

    We'd visited the East End area for a mooch round and came in for a look round. It's free to enter and is a small compact gallery. There was a Yoko Ono exhibition on when we visited which encouraged visitor interaction, creating pieces of your own art which I enjoyed doing. There was enough to detain us for a short while and found things of interest to look at and read about.
