1,260 reviews
Immerse yourself in Victorian London on this one-of-a-kind Jack the Ripper experience featuring RIPPER-VISION.™ Unlike other tours, your guide uses handheld projectors to accompany spine-chilling tales of the murders committed by Jack the Ripper in the 1800s. As you explore the dimly lit back streets of Whitechapel, images of Victorian London are projected onto buildings to guarantee a highly atmospheric experience. Plus, an evening departure time means you’ll experience London at its most mysterious.

I suppose it was inevitable that Damien Hirst would one day use his Newport Street Gallery to exhibit his own work. Whether this was because Covid-19 created a gap in his programming I know not. But given the prevalent theme of death in so much of his work from the pickled fish to decomposing animal heads in plastic boxes swarming with flies and the cabinets of potentially lethal drugs this exhibition seems timely. But whereas all of this material once had a cutting edge effect what was the shock of the new is now the repetition of the passé. And the calf’s head dripping in ketchup all seems terribly tame in stark contrast with the grim reality of the mounting deaths in the immediate world outside. More diverting was the female staff member brushing non-existent detritus from the floor into a pan. Not sure what point was being made but it distracted attention from the other banalities on display.

Set up or run by British artist Damian Hirst, this gallery is situated in a rather quiet area not far from tube station Vauxhall. I was there when it opened in the morning, and I was the only visitor for at least half an hour.

This place was the highlight of my trip to London! I want along time see the “disinformation” paintings by John Squire. I am so impressed by these paintings. It was fantastic to see them up close. I recommend a visit to the pharmacy while there, they will sort you out ;)

I love visiting this art venue. I have never seen it busy and it always has really interesting exhibitions in this beautiful space. I'm almost hesitant to say more in case its gets busy

A great gallery space, always worth visting if you're into contemporary art and the latest Brit art - Weds 11th Sept was the opening of the above mixed selection of sculptural works and paintings, a strangely curated selection not all to my fancy - but the good stuff made up for it !
