House of Illustration

The House of Illustration stands as the UK’s only public gallery solely dedicated to illustration. Sir Quentin Blake (illustrator for Roald Dahl) opened the space in Kings Cross in 2014 under the remit of promoting and celebrating illustration to galvanise conversation and further exploration of the art form. Throughout the year it runs 10 exhibitions which are complemented by a series of related talks and events open to all age groups.

It is housed in a beautiful 19th century building designed by Lewis Cubbit, the man also responsible for designing the nearby Kings Cross railway station. Visitors can enjoy three galleries upon entry, which change and evolve in relation to the exhibitions as they open. Although still a relatively new gallery, its popularity shows it has tapped into an interest shared by thousands of others in London.
