An inspirational, ever-changing, and did I mention free(!) resource in the heart of Oxford Circus. Getty Images Gallery maintains a wealth of visual interest for photographers, designers, historians, and anyone with a vague interest in culture, really. The descriptions and commentary around the images in the historical collections provide a good depth of insight, leaving you keen to delve a little deeper on your own. Fairly compact in size, the exhibitions on a range of diverse topics manage to make an extraordinary impact. A must-visit, at the very least, for a reprieve from the crowds on Oxford Street!


Great place to escape from the insanity of Oxford Street, the exhibitions I've seen are always excellent (as you'd expect from Getty's enormous archive) but the current Gods & Monsters is particularly so with some stand-out portraits of stars from Hollywood's Golden Age.  Would quite happily have paid a few quid to look around it.


Attended a viewing of the new Gods and Monsters exhibition last night. Love the gallery and really enjoyed the work on display. Tucked away just north of Oxford Street, this gallery is free and worth a visit any time you are in town. Most of the images are for sale, and that's the dangerous bit. I could spend a fortune here.

nice place to be. maybe a set of a restroom and/or a coffee shop would improve it a lot!
