All over Instagram, I’ve been seeing reels showing London’s newest art exhibitions. Personally, I’m a huge fan of museums, and could spend hours just roaming around, but I know it’s not for everyone. However, from the reels I’ve been seeing, the exhibitions on show at the moment are absolutely magical, and I’m sure would inspire even the most uninterested. In this post, I’ve put together my top 4 that I’d love to see for myself (along with many more!) Whether you take a friend, a date, or family, definitely try and check out some of these exhibitions before they shut.
Tate Modern – Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirror Rooms
You’ve probably seen this on multiple TikToks and reels, but who can be surprised? The Infinity Mirror Rooms look truly spectacular: almost like pure magic.
Where? Tate Modern, Bankside.
Ticket availability? It’s unsurprisingly sold out till late October, but will be open until June 2022, so look out for more tickets in their September ticket release!
Price? Free for members, otherwise £10.
Why you should go: Doesn’t it speak for itself? Rooms on rooms of Instagram-worthy snaps. But more deeply, you get to experience parts of Yayoi Kusama’s life in art, from her lonely experience of living in New York (Walking Piece), to experiencing for ourselves her visual hallucinations (Infinity Mirror Room).
London Film Museum – The Harry Potter Photographic Exhibition
For all you Harry Potter fans out there, I’ve got you covered.
Where? London Film Museum, Covent Garden
Ticket availability? Pre-book.
Price? 16 years and over is £20 (for an hour – includes access to a Butterbeer bar and a green-screen experience). See here for more ticket info.
Why you should go: This is the prime opportunity for Harry Potter fans everywhere to see a exhibition full of photographs from the making of the films, all of them never before seen in one place! Walk through and see all the behind the scenes pictures from the iconic movies (and don’t forget about visiting the bottled Butterbeer bar!)
Kensington Gardens – Van Gogh The Immersive Experience
For the true art enthusiasts of the world.
Where? Kensington Gardens
Ticket availability? High availability – pre-book. Ends in September 26th!
Price? From £14 (adult ticket £24)
Why you should go: Maybe I’m biased as I love Vincent Van Gogh’s story and works, but I think this will be an amazing experience: seeing his art blown up on a big screen, learning more about his life, visiting a life-sized representation of his room, and visiting an immersive sunflower room, this multi-sensory experience is not to be missed.
Victoria & Albert Museum – Alice: Curiouser and Curiouser
I hadn’t actually seen this on social media until I done a bit of research, but this looks too good to miss!
Where? Victoria and Albert Museum, South Kensington
Ticket availability? Pre-book – open until 31st December!
Why you should go: This exhibition takes you down the rabbit hole to explore all things Alice in Wonderland: see original drawings of characters, stunning sets displaying the best works based on the legendary story, costumes, and more. Definitely one to check out if you want to see something different.
I’d love to hear some of your favourite exhibitions, or know whether you’ve visited any of these in the comments below. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten to go to a museum, so I’m definitely keen to get my hands on some of these tickets.
Starting university can normally lead to one of three things: excitement; fear; or a bit of both. For me, it was definitely the third. I had no idea what to expect on this new journey, and it didn’t help that I wasn’t the most confident person. You almost want to watch a trailer of your […]
I’m finally back (hopefully with a bang), starting off my Oxford series from when I stayed there back in late August. Oxford is by far one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen in the UK to date: its beautiful Gothic and Baroque architecture are the star of the show for me, but there’s plenty […]
It’s official: I’m in a rut. Ever since finishing university, I’ve been in this “I don’t want to do anything” phase, which I thought would last a couple days. A couple days turned into a month, and here we are now.
I’ve always been a fan of the Olympics: I love seeing how insanely talented athletes are and watching records get broken with every four years (or rather five, in this case) that passes. I love watching it with my family, and seeing the spirit of the nation rise with every medal that’s achieved. What I’ve […]
Sandbanks first came onto my radar when I watched a TV show talk to Harry Redknapp about his home in the area. It appeared to be a pretty exclusive area: small in size, but lined with grand houses amongst a sandy beachfront (a sandy beach in England, I know!) It wasn’t until recently that I […]
As a graduating student of 2021, I can safely say that it feels like I haven’t really graduated. I’ve been doing assignments and having lessons over Blackboard Collaborate at home for months on end, and with no proper graduation to top off three years of hard work, it almost feels like the university experience isn’t […]
