A quick round-up of the fairs to visit this week, we think you can probably do them all in one day if you start early enough. First up head to Regents Park for Frieze London & Masters then head just down the road to Sunday art fair at Baker Street then grab a bus to Chelsea for British Art Fair and Moniker then finish your day at Somerset House and 1:54.
