Whitechapel Gallery

Whitechapel Gallery was founded in 1901 as a way of bringing art to the people of east London. The gallery has exhibited works by Picasso, Jackson Pollock, David Hockney, Gilbert & George, Donald Judd, Cy Twombly, Cristina Iglesias and Franz West. Over the centuries, the gallery has established itself as an internationally-renowned place to view modern and contemporary art.

The nearest tub station is Aldgate East, while Liverpool Street and Tower Gateway stations and Shoreditch High Street overground station are approximately 15 minutes walk away. The 25, 205 and 254 buses stop directly outside the gallery. There are bike docking stations nearby at Altab Ali Park and Aldgate East.
