The Photographers Gallery

Tucked away on a small side street near Leicester Square, the Photographers’ Gallery is Britain’s leading centre for contemporary photography.

With a year-round programme of fantastic free exhibitions and events, the core collection of classic and contemporary photographs is boosted by a more eclectic selection of work by emerging photographers.

This compact venue with its defined collections lends itself to short visits and is great for filling in an hour or so in the centre of town. Having said that, the reputation of this small gallery is high, hosting as it does the Deutsche Börse Prize, the photographer’s equivalent of the Turner. This is accessible art in every respect.

Best for…
Contemporary photography, classic, eclectic and accessible.
