  • Visitor Information

The ParlourThe grim exterior, just a little past the part of Chalk Farm where the posh people go, offers no clue as to the sheer loveliness of this fashionable gallery. It's the kind of funky, high-ceilinged space that makes architects go weak at the knees, and is currently home to an impressively-curated selection of exhibitions by young London artists. The last word in underground art-chic.
