Whitechapel Art Gallery (London) ... London. Located on Whitechapel High Street, Tower Hamlets, the Gallery has a strong track record for education and outreach projects, now focused on the Whitechapel area's Asian population. It exhibits the work of contemporary artists, as well as organizing retrospective exhibitions and shows that are of interest to the local community. For the history of post-war British art, the most important exhibition to have been held at the Whitechapel Gallery was This is Tomorrow in 1956. Initiated by members of the Independent Group, the exhibition brought Pop Art to the general public as well as introducing some of the artists, concepts, designers and photographers that would define the Swinging Sixties.

This is a big space and you can easily spend the whole afternoon checking out all the art. The space is easy to navigate and very pleasant to be in. The cafe is funky and sells delicious home-made food at reasonable prices. It has also been ... more

The Whitechapel re-opened earlier this year after an extensive refurbishment. This space is light, bright and airy and full of excellent design details.

This is one, similar to the Serpentine, which is usually missed out on the tourist route, which is a boon for London art fans. Situated near Aldgate East tube station, surrounded by budget trainer and sari shops, it feels like an unusual area for a gallery - most visitors to the city would only know Whitechapel for the Jack the Ripper connection. But just down the road is Brick Lane and Spitalfields market, so it can make an interesting part of a day out in the East End. It also has a slightly edgier feel to it than some of the more upmarket West End galleries, and has hosted some of the most interesting exhibitions in London during the past few years.
