Timed tickets can be purchased over the phone by contacting our Visitor Relations team on +44 (0)20 7087 9300 and in the Gallery during opening hours.

Will I need to wear a mask or face covering?
As of 24 July, all visitors will need to wear a face covering. We will regularly review this in line with government and health guidelines.

How does the one-way system operate?
Visitors to the galleries will be asked to ascend via the lift directly to the top (5th) floor and to make their way through each gallery via the stairwell. If you have difficulty walking or using stairs, please notify our staff at the Welcome Desk upon arrival and they will be able to assist you. Route pointers and distancing markers will be in place throughout the building.

Visitors to the café, bookshop, and print sales will be asked to observe social distancing measures and one-way markers on the stairs.

How long am I allowed in the galleries?
All exhibition tickets are timed with one-hour slots to enter. We suggest you allow one hour to see all our exhibitions. Once you leave the exhibition, re-admission is not permitted. Last entry is one hour before the Gallery closes.

What steps have you taken to ensure visitors with disabilities have access to the galleries?
We warmly welcome visitors with disabilities and their companions. The Gallery can be accessed via a level entrance from Ramillies Street. Our building is DDA compliant and all areas of the Gallery are accessible by lift. A wheelchair-accessible toilet is located on Floor 5 of the Gallery. Portable hearing loops are available on request, booking required. All assistance dogs are welcome, and a water bowl is available on request.

I’ve ordered something from the Bookshop, how long will it take to be delivered to me?
Our regular staff and working structure has been significantly affected by coronavirus. Therefore, we now use a weekly shipping cycle to send out all online orders. If you place an order that requires a faster turnaround, please contact us at the shop or via the Shopify email system. 'Click & Collect' orders will generally be processed within one day and can be picked up from the Bookshop during our opening hours, upon notification from a staff member. If we encounter any significant delays in sending your order out to you, we will contact you by email. At this point, you reserve the right to cancel your order, if subsequently inconvenient.

To discuss your order, contact our Bookshop team at

Will there still be shipping to international countries?
We will continue to process international orders, but services may take longer than usual depending on international shipping restrictions. Drop us a line at with any queries.  

I have a book/film/product reserved for collection from the Gallery, am I able to pick it up?
Yes! 'Click & Collect' orders and reservations will generally be processed within one day and can be picked up from the Bookshop during our opening hours, upon notification from a staff member.

Can someone help me with a problem ordering online?
Yes, contact and someone will get back to you as soon as we can.

How can I find out about something that’s not in the online shop?
Contact who will be happy to help.
