Beautifully done as an architectural conversion of the house. I particularly liked the Morandis and the current temporary exhibition. The music in the cafe is too loud for my taste---but I don't like recorded background music at all. Silence would be better. The food looked delicious but we don't sit down if there is music.

Having had out interest whetted by the reviews for the latest temporary exhibition, we ventured to Canonbury Square for our first visit to the recently extended Estorick Collection. Easily accessible using Route 4 bus from Waterloo which stops outside the nearby Islington Town Hall. The Gallery is situated within an interesting Georgian building with exhibits on three floors plus a... More

If you are at all interested in the First World War then this exhibition at the Estorick is worth an hour or so of your time. The Estorick is conveniently located a short walk (3min) from Highbury & Islington tube station. Before you exit the station look at the collection of photos in the far corner of the station which...

Well, not very small - it has about 6 small galleries on several floors and a very reasonable price to get in. Staff members are all very friendly and helpful. Pictures and sculptures all presented very well and uncluttered. The permanent collection has a lot of great pieces, a few by well known artists such as Modigliani but most were... More

Well worth visiting. This is a wonderful small collection with galleries for other exhibitions of Italian art. The spaces are small but good. The cafe a real treat. You can sit in the garden which is lovely. Happily visit again. Also....the area is worth walking around.

I didn't even know that this collection existed until very recently when it cropped up during a conversation with a friend. When a visit to London was arranged I thought I should check it out. I'm not very knowledgeable about modern Italian art, even though I have spent some time viewing the Giorgio Morandi collection in Bologna, admittedly many years... More

Located in Islington, the Estorick collection hosts a collection of Italian contemporary art that has few rivals. The names of the exposed artists speak fir themselves: all Futurism (including some pre-futurist paintings of Boccioni), Sironi, Guttuso, Zoran Music, Modigliani, Greco, among others. The gallery hosts temporary exhibitions: currently, one about a movement of abstract painters front the north east of... More

This is the UK's only museum dedicated solely to Italian art. Housed in a Grade II heritage listed restored Georgian villa, this collection of Italian paintings, drawings, etchings and sculptures is small but outstanding. Six galleries contain some temporary exhibits, but the nucleus of the permanent work rests with early 20th century Futurists Balla, Boccioni, Carrá, Serverini and Russolo. There... More

The current exhbition on colours is really interesting as is this atmospheric gallery set in an old house. We also enjoyed the homemade Italian food and relaxing ambience in the restaurant. Definitely worth the trip.
