"Smaller art galleries" Top 5 Page for this destination London Off The Beaten Path Tip by toonsarah

London Off The Beaten Path: 1,659 reviews and 2,921 photos

  Proud Gallery near Trafalgar Square
by toonsarah

Update April 2014: website links updated

Of course you'll want to check out some of London's famous galleries like the National Gallery and the Tate, but if you like art I recommend that you also investigate some of the city's smaller galleries. We like to go to photography exhibitions so the Photographers' Gallery is a regular destination for us. The Proud Galleries are also excellent for photography exhibitions - there is one in Camden and another in central London near Trafalgar Square. A recent great exhibition at the latter featured photos of 1950s London taken by the film director Ken Russell.

These websites will help you find an exhibition that appeals to you:
Londonist (a great website for all sorts of ideas on things to do in London)
New exhibitions of contemporary art
Proud Galleries
