Ocula City Guide London An estimated 1500 galleries, including famous institutions such as Tate Modern, ICA, Whitechapel and the Serpentine make London a must visit. In the west galleries are situated in Mayfair, Fitzrovia and Soho; whilst the east has more edgy spaces in Bermondsy, Hoxton and Bethnal Green. The city also plays host to renowned international art fairs: Frieze, Frieze Masters and Art London. A rebirth of contemporary culture sparked by punk and the YBAs, galvanized London in the 1990s. Now as an international hub for business and culture, London is a contender for world art capital with the recent arrival of major US galleries.
