Neighbouring London's financial centre, the Whitechapel is one of the city's most inspiring art galleries. This beautiful Grade I listed building was designed by Charles Harrison Townsend and opened in 1901 as Britain’s first purpose-built contemporary art gallery.

For over a century the Whitechapel has been at the heart of East London, now Europe’s most dynamic cultural quarter. The Gallery has provided a platform for Britain’s most significant artists from Gilbert & George to Lucian Freud, Peter Doig to Mark Wallinger, as well as premiering key international artists such as Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Nan Goldin. The Gallery is a unique and outstanding venue for your special event.

‘The day at the Whitechapel was more than inspiring: it motivated us all to look for new sources of inspiration in our everyday job, in our everyday life.’ Marc Mathieu, Sr. V.P., Managing Director, The Coca-Cola Company

Entertain your guests in the context of the Whitechapel's critically acclaimed and innovative programme of modern and contemporary art and architecture exhibitions. The Whitechapel can arrange exclusive curator-led tours as an excellent introduction for your guests to the work of leading international artists.

For daytime or evening, conferences or events, the Whitechapel is the ideal vehicle for entertaining, marketing and client liaison.

The Whitechapel has a reputation for imaginative solutions and versatility.
