The Royal Academy is a working institution, a living and breathing home for art and artists. It houses one of the last free art schools in Europe, and shows some of the best art in the world, from cutting edge contemporary artists, such as Asia's most famous artist Ai Weiwei to the great masters, the likes of Monet and da Vinci. With beautiful galleries and an inviting atmosphere,it's home to a café, a brasserie, indoor and outdoor cocktail bar (one of London's hidden gems), and a white tablecloth formal dining room. There's also a robust program of talks, workshops, and events worth checking out.
