I've been going to the Photographer's Gallery regularly since 1980 and it's still absolutely my favourite place in London. I used to go to see amazing photography, browse lovely books I couldn't afford, eat good, cheap food and have a wee. Very little has changed...More

Just off Oxford Street near to Oxford Circus, the gallery is place to spend an hour or so in a calm environment away from the bustle of Oxford Street. The Alex Prager exhibition was visually stimulating and intellectually interesting. The café was delightful and offers...More

Although described as a 'major new exhibition...' of his work, there's not many photographs and, in particular, no sign of the beach scene photograph used to publicise the exhibition which I assumed would be there. Only worth going to if you get there before 12...More
