Talk about this event

Craig’s review of Bank of England Museum – “I don't suppose many tourists bother to visit the Bank of England Museum (or even the locals) but I've always had a soft spot for this place.

Craig’s review of Saatchi Gallery You don't want to listen to me when it comes to art because I haven't got a clue what I'm talking about (hey, at least I'm honest!). But I do know what minimalism is, and the Saatchi Gallery is a minimalist gallery of modern art. That is how I would describe it, because ther… continued
Craig’s review of National Portrait Gallery The National Portrait Gallery is probably my favourite gallery in London because it appeals to history lovers as well as art lovers.
