We are both novices when it comes to antiques and this was a perfect opportunity to spend time with an expert who could help educate us and guide us. We met Mark Hill (who is charming and a pleasure to spend time with) at Alfie's Antique Market and after a brief chat over cappuccino, we wandered through various stalls, where... More

We had an amazing time with Joshua, it was exactly what we were looking for. Being an art expert and professor, Joshua was able to show us the pieces we were interested in as well as allowing us to learn more about contemporary art and british art in particular. I would highly recommend this, or any other, SideStory experience

Amazing half day with Stuart, who has a fascinating life-story he's willing to share, and genuine depth of knowledge about photography and the East End.

What an amazing morning. Josh, our curator, was absolutely brilliant - knowledgeable, interesting and pitched it just right. We visited a broad range of galleries ranging in the types of art they showed, ending up in Soho's Brewer Street carpark watching the most amazing video installation. A hidden gem and brilliant finale. Would whole heartedly recommend this experience.
