The Smithfield Gallery. A great place to pick up a virus.

The Smithfield Gallery currently contains some of the biggest killers on Earth. The Virology exhibition presents the glass work of Luke Jerram. His exquisite sculptures of HIV, SARS, smallpox, swine flu, avian flu and - spot the odd one out - E. coli boggle the mind with their intricate and delicate structures. You don't want to visit this place with a large rucksack. Know your enemy. And then buy your enemy at prices starting from £1900.

Virology runs at the Smithfield Gallery until 3 October.
