Ceri Hand Gallery History Ceri Hand Gallery was established in May 2008 by Ceri Hand, in a converted warehouse in the docks area of North Liverpool, in response to the lack of commercial galleries in the city.

The last exhibition at Copperfield Street was Eleanor Moreton: Tales of Love and Darkness, which closed on 12 April 2014. The galleries ethos was to support artists at crucial stages of their career in the development, production and promotion of new work, staging ambitious exhibitions on and offsite.

Unit24 is a gallery created in response to the changing face of the world of art and it is fiercely independent – not beholden to institutions, funding bodies or the art establishment. Yet it sits close to the heart of the art world – literally a stone’s throw from the Tate Modern. It recognizes the intersection of art and commerce – hence it bases itself in a location that has a ‘real’ business attached to it. Unit24 presents intersection of fine art and other visual disciplines – design, photography, performance and film. All activities of Unit24 Gallery are operated by Unit24 LCC California. All shows and events will be organized by this company. Please contact us via email regarding bookings or events we can organize for you.

Prince Henry's Room is situated on the first floor at the front of No.17 Fleet Street, London. The house is one of the few surviving buildings in the City of London dating from before the Great Fire of London in 1666. It is a Grade II* Listed Building.HistoryThe site was once owned by the Templars, but after the dissolution of the Order of St John, the building was rebuilt in 1610 and became a tavern called Prince's Arms. This coincided with the investiture of Prince Henry, son of James I, as Prince of Wales. During the 17th century, the house was known as the Fountain Inn and was visited by Samuel Pepys on 14 October 1661. He wrote "In the afternoon Captain Ferrers and I walked abroad to several places; among others, to Mr.Pim's my Lord's tailors and there he went out with us to the Fountain tavern and did give us store of wine." On 28 November 1661, Pepys wrote "to the Fountain tavern and there stayed till 12 at night, drinking and singing, Mr.Symons and one Mr.Agar singing very well. Then Mr.Gauden, being almost drunk, had the wit to be gone; and so I took leave too" During the early 19th century a famous exhibition "Mrs Salmon's Waxworks" was held in the front part of the house, whilst the Tavern continued in the rear. The house became the property of the London County Council in 1908 with the aid of a contribution from the City Corporation. It later passed to the City of London Corporation, which administers the property now.

Welcome to the Facebook page of Sir John Soane's Museum. Sir John Soane, R.A., architect, was born in 1753, the son of a bricklayer, and died after a long and distinguished career, in 1837. Soane designed his house to live in, but also as a setting for his antiquities and his works of art. After the death of his wife (1815), he lived alone, constantly adding to and rearranging his collections. Having been deeply disappointed by the conduct of his two sons, one of whom survived him, he determined to establish the house as a museum to which ‘amateurs and students’ should have access. The Museum is a building of outstanding originality, with its picturesque vistas and inventive handling of light and space. He filled it with a remarkable collection of art, sculpture, books, drawings and models. The collection includes paintings by Hogarth, Canaletto, Turner and Reynolds; antique sculpture; plaster casts; architectural models and an Egyptian sarcophagus. The objects are arranged in a labyrinth of top-lit spaces, decorated with hundreds of mirrors.
