London Gallery Weekend is upon us and, as always, the choice of galleries and exhibitions to visit across the city is almost breathtaking. The largest event of its kind in the world, this weekend 134 galleries across London will open their doors and launch their summer exhibitions. It is an opportunity to make a day out of visiting many of the smaller galleries that make up the backbone of London’s art scene. But, of course, there is the question of where to even begin!

Our guide to London Gallery Weekend splits the city into its three major gallery districts, Central, East and South, and handpicks the shows you simply cannot miss.
