Hey, well Britain has got loads of great places to see Art although London is probably the cultural centre!, but you'll find it all around, Edinburghs also a great place to go.
Is there any knd of art you are specifically looking for like modern, old english, sculpture??

yes, thats why I will stay in London first
and then start travel to other countries after that.

hm...I love Old English Art & Modern Art, but I like scuplture TOO~~
just "painting" is more suitable to my field, and...the exhibition of the Young Artists also my favorite

I have visited to National Art Gallery last year, but just visited north wing, too many things, too little times

Thank you for the suggestion

ya...I heard about Tate Modern, but never been there. For my last trip to the UK, I have only visited few galleries in Cambridge, National Gallery and Loyal Academy (to a students' art exhibition)in London, but it was a "rush viewing", I woudnt let myself missed it again. Looking forward to September~

I moved to London a few years ago to study Fashion at Art school and it was the best thing I ever did, there are some amazing places to visit!theres the obvious places like the Tate, National Gallery, the V&A, ect which are all simply amazing. The Tate is brilliant if you are interested in English art as there is a lot of Turner, Gainsborough ect and such a vast amount of it!!!!If you are more interested in modern and conceptual art try out places like the Saatchi Gallery, Tate Modern ect....I often find the smaller, less publicised exhibitions are the most interesting, The Whitechapel gallery often showcases some cool stuff by less well know artists and up and coming art students. Also theres several places around Old Street and Hoxton such as the "White Cube" which has some great stuff by people such as Damien Hirst.Try out a few of the University galleries too, theres some amazing work!The Royal College of Art, Chelsea School of Art and Central St Martins all have great little galleries!!! Get "The Guide" that comes free with the Guardian newspaper on a saturday, it has all the listings for the London region from the really big exhibits to the smaller more quirky ones too!!!!Hope this helps!!!!Have fun!!!!
