Tucked away in a little building in between North Greenwich Underground and the O2, Now Gallery is a surprise find. After seeing it reviewed in Time Out London, we have been meaning to visit Now Gallery for its latest exhibition, Slices of Time. Although it wasn’t exactly the same exhibition as the photos from the Time Out review, it was still very impressive to see all the colourful numbers hanging from the ceiling. For those wanting an Instagram moment, here’s your chance.
It’s free to enter and only takes about 5-10 minutes. You have the opportunity to write a short message or draw a picture to stick up on the timeline window. Given the current health situation, a lot of those messages were novel coronavirus themed. Cara was happy to add her rainbow picture to the collection.
The current exhibition runs until 19th April 2020, so be sure to pop in if you’re in the area. A lady that was there at the same time mentioned she travelled all the way from Windsor to view it, that’s dedication!

Burn Time: 1 out of 5 – there’s only the one exhibit so doesn’t take very long, however you may end up being there 10-15 minutes taking photos from a thousand different angles.
Value: 5 out of 5 – free!
Overall: 4 out of 5 – lovely exhibit. Great finding the relevant years hanging and remembering what happened in each one.
