Founded in 1901 to bring art to East London, Whitechapel Gallery specializes in contemporary art and exhibits in a range of forms including audio-visual media and sculpture. The art here is always new and innovative as it allows you to see the very latest on the London cultural scene. Give yourself plenty of time as the gallery is best enjoyed when you’re in no rush.
The bookshop is incredibly well stocked and the restaurant completes with a modern interior. It is also a good idea to check out what events are on as the Whitechapel Gallery hosts film screenings and public debates among talks and performances.
