Whitechapel Gallery London Reviews
Whitechapel Gallery Jul 06, 2011
Whitechapel Art Gallery is in the East End of London, right outside Aldgate East tube station. It is free admission, unless you are attending a special exhibition, and is open until 6pm.
The gallery is quite small, and won’t take long to visit unless you have a specific interest in the art. I was there to see some of the works in the government art collection, and I think my visit took about 20 minutes. That said, it is well curated, and the information labels are very interesting. The building itself is light and airy, with a café and a tiny little gift shop.
Unless there is an exhibition you are particularly interested in, it probably isn’t worth your time making a special journey out to Whitechapel. But this is a very nice gallery, and if there is something you are interested in then the journey would be worthwhile. In tourist terms, the gallery is close to Brick Lane and Spitalfields, and you could have a very nice afternoon in the area.
