That London has a wealth of free art galleries enriches the capital immeasurably. When galleries charge hefty entrance fees visitors often feel that they need to plan a visit and traipse around the whole exhibition to get their money's worth. However, when entrance is free you can fit art galleries into the busiest of schedules: drop in for a few minutes to get a dose of culture and some tranquility away from the hectic bustle of the city. Whether you have only a passing interest in art or it's your main pasion in life, whether your preference is old masters or the latest from the contemporary scene, there's something here for everyone.

For more than a century the Whitechapel Gallery has featured outstanding contemporary artists, whether Picasso, Pollock, Rothko or Kahlo in earlier years, or, more recently, the likes of Lucian Freud, David Hockney, Gilbert and George and Mark Wallinger. It's extensive £13.5 million revamp, completed in 2009, has resulted in three times the exhibition space than it had before, There are regular events and activities, including childrens' drawing workshops, family art trails and courses, and for older visitors, courses and workshops, talks and discussions, performances and film programmes.
