Enhance your trip

  • Different to most other Art Academies, The Royal Academy of Art is privately funded and completely dedicated to promoting the enjoyment, appreciation and creation of visual art.
  • The National Portrait Gallery was established with the criteria that the Gallery was to be about history, not about art, and about the status of the sitter, rather than the quality or character of a particular image considered as a work of art.
  • As the world’s leading museum of art and design, the V&A enriches people’s lives by promoting the practice of design and increasing knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of the designed world.
  • The Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture (MoDA) is a museum in North London, housing one of the most comprehensive collections of 19th- and 20th-century decorative arts for the home.
  • The Courtauld is a vibrant international centre for the study of the history of art and conservation and is also home to one of the finest small art museums in the world.
  • Enjoy our vibrant exhibitions celebrating the very best in contemporary watercolour and original print. Opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 1980, Bankside Gallery is an educational charity, situated on the Thames Path just along from Tate Modern.
  • The museum covers product, industrial, graphic, fashion and architectural design. It was founded in 1989 and claims to be the first museum of modern design.
  • The ICA supports radical art and culture. Through a vibrant programme of exhibitions, films, events, talks and debates, the ICA challenges perceived notions and stimulates debate, experimentation, creativity and exchange with visitors.
  • Since its first public flight in March 2000 the London Eye has been a dominant feature to London’s Southbank. This wheel can carry up to 800 passengers per turn and views as far as Windsor Castle can be seen on a clear day.
  • The Shard is among the latest addition to London’s skyline designed by Master Architect Renzo Piano. It has become the tallest building in Western Europe at a height of 1016ft.
  • Some of London’s most classic icons can be seen on a Thames boat trip which meanders through the centre of the UK’s capital sailing past Canary Wharf, Westminster and more.
  • The Tower of London is draped in history, first established by William the Conqueror and dating back to 1066. It has been the home of the Crown Jewels since the 1100’s. The Tower of London is now a World Heritage Site and one of London’s major tourist must see attractions.
  • Madame Tussauds London covers over two centries of figures from popular and celebrity culture under one roof. There are 14 different sections displaying over 300 wax figures including some of Madame Tussaud’s early work.
