My daughter loves this architectural giant of an art gallery. The underground space called the Tanks, on the right of the Turbine Hall, is her favourite. Dedicated to video and interactive art, it’s totally immersive for children, and I enjoy exploring art genres I wouldn’t normally engage with. There’s a “drawing bar” on level one in the Boiler House where anyone can take a seat at a digital sketch pad and get drawing. My daughter and I have spent hours here—she never tires of seeing her digital drawings projected on the wall.

“The Approach was founded in 1997. One of the gallery’s original objectives was to offer solo exhibitions to London based artists at the start of their careers – several of whom have gone on to achieve international success. The programme has since expanded into a strongly international one, and The Approach continues to work with established artists, as well as exhibiting younger emerging artists.”
“Recently opened outpost of the historicay famous Italian eatery in Mayfair of the same name. The ambiance is spot on. The the cheapest pizza or pasta in Shoreditch but the overall experience can not be faulted. (Be sure to check out the toilets)”
