The list of things to do in London is endless. It doesn’t matter how many times you visit it, you’ve never seen it all in London. There’s always something new, from a pop-up burger joint in East London to a blockbuster exhibition at one of London’s galleries. There’s something different to experience every day in London.
For now I leave here the Best Design and Arts Galleries that you should not miss in this century city.

David Gill is a pioneering gallerist of 20th Century and contemporary design. He produced some of the first furniture collections from Zaha Hadid to Mattia Bonetti and was one of the first people to show the work of artist Grayson Perry.

His latest gallery in St James’s demonstrates the significant role he has played in changing the status and perception of contemporary design internationally.
