Daily Introductory Tour

Certainly the premiere museum of its kind featuring a fabulous courtyard for relaxing, splashing and eating, although the three rooms built to serve patrons of the first cafe as part of a museum are not to be missed! Their chocolate brownies are exceptional.

This gallery hidden away on Finchley road is a great place to escape to. Each exhibit is carefully curated to bring the small space to life. The tours are small giving you the chance to ask as many questions as possible and really have a conversation about the art on show.
