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. http://www.gettyimagesgallery.com
