    Lovely gallery with some fantastic pictures ( some very famous!). We had a lovely wander around which took just over an hour although you could stay as long as you want. It wasn't particularly busy which was nice. Also great that students get free entry!

    Had an amazing experience watching Moonwalkers; it brought back the excitement associated (particularly) with the Apolo 11 mission when I witnessed history being made. The sequence of the launch of the Saturn V rocket was really moving. Tom Hanks' narration was superb. Hearing from some of the Artemis astronauts about their enthusiasm for missions to return humans to the surface of the moon was superb.

    What a great venue! Sound system was terrific. Floor area and mezzanine spacious even though event was very well attended (all tickets sold). Staff constantly patrolling to keep the flooring clean from spilled drinks and clearing glasses. The toilets were immaculate!

    Wonderful to see Holbein's sketches up close and the gallery explaining the materials and techniques he used was very interesting. Also impressed by the skill of the curators in providing such good explanatory text beside each drawing. Great value for money. The queue for entry was frankly bizarre and as a previous commenter has said could be easily improved with the addition of boards indicating where to queue based on time of entry.

    You descend one level to view artifacts in cases and read about the history of the site. Then you descend one more level to view the parts that have been exposed. It is something to be down there among the ruins. Well worth a visit.

    Helpful and informative staff. Beautiful display of recently discovered Roman ephemera - really enchanting and well curated. Informative audio explaining the background of Mithras and then the immersive experience of the temple setting. Well worth a visit if you are in the City of London area.

    I can see this street not being for everyone, but if you love books and/or art, you absolutely have to visit. I fell in love with this charming court, and the bookstores are all unique in their merchandise. The area also has many bookstores outside of Cecil Court, so bring your waller (and be sure to stop in Watkins Books. That place was AMAZING)

    Every time we come to London from Australia we try to visit the Serpentine galleries and every time they have been shut for one reason or another.

    Today we tried again. We had lunch at The Magazine and asked the way to the gallery. We were told it was shut for refurbishment. This was only in relation to the North gallery, we found out. No mention that the South gallery was actually open which we found out by accident as we were leaving the park that way.

    The exhibition we saw was by Yinka Shonibare. The 'paintings' were ok but the highlights for us were the stunning installations. Very different and interesting. And well worth a view.

    There's also a lovely bookshop, bigger than we expected, and with a focus on the arts.

    One of my last days in London, and I could not leave without going to a photo gallery! Glad I did.

    There was a piece on the top floor by Bieke Depoorter that was really engaging. And another work about Thamesmead that was equally as interesting. The showings rotate, so it's really luck of the draw as to what you'll see.

    The gift shop is epic. They have so many books that I wanted to get, but alas, I am but a disabled traveller, unfit for carry large volumes across the pond.

    Most importantly, they sell all types of film in the shop. Film and even cameras. Who needs candy when you can lick the delicious toxic chemicals of celluloid?

    The Halcyon Gallery is located in New Bond Street close to Berkeley Square. It is just under half a mile from Green Park tube station on foot. It consists of two premises facing each other on either side of New Bond Street.

    Although the Warhol exhibition is primarily for buyers, casual visitors are welcome and I found the staff to be informative and helpful.

    The well known pictures of Marilyn Monroe, Chairman Mao and Campbell’s Soup were on show as well as less known work.

    I didn’t know about Warhol’s relationship with Pele who he met whilst the great man was playing for New York Cosmos in the late Seventies.

    I liked the Pele work and memorabilia very much as well as that of Muhammad Ali.

    There was also a great black and white photograph of Nico and Warhol dressed up as Batman and Robin.

    The exhibition is free and runs until 7 April 2024.
