About

For more than a century the Whitechapel Gallery has premiered world-class artists from modern masters such as Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Frida Kahlo to contemporaries such as Sophie Calle, Lucian Freud, Gilbert & George and Mark Wallinger.

With beautiful galleries, exhibitions, artist commissions, collection displays, historic archives, education resources, inspiring art courses, dining room and bookshop, the gallery is open all year round, so there is always something free to see.

The gallery is oh so lovely with good major exhibitions and often interesting free ones as well. Bookstore is gold and staff is always friendly. Really, the bookshop!! The cafe however is quite bad. The food is alright but not great and the staff were confused. Restaurant much nicer and better food and service. Laid back but nice.more

What an oasis!

We needed to go to Whitechapel and decided to pop into the gallery for a look around. I've not been there for years and had no idea they had a fancy new restaurant. Without reservations, we got a table for two for Sunday lunch. We were lucky, as during the course of our lunch the place filled up. The staff were charming...more
