Two unique Grade II listed contemporary art galleries in Kensington Gardens, the Serpentine Gallery and the Serpentine Sackler Gallery present eight exhibitions per year.
Complementing the seasonal exhibitions programme is the acclaimed Pavilion commission – a temporary structure designed by a leading international architect who has not previously completed a building in England – which is sited on the Serpentine Gallery’s lawn each summer.
Open to the public Tuesday – Sunday 10am – 6pm, the spaces can be hired privately for breakfast and evening events, or full day events on a Monday.
