Serpentine Gallery is one of London’s best-loved galleries for modern and contemporary art. Its Exhibition, Architecture, Education and Public Programmes attracts up to 800,000 visitors in any one year and admission is free.

In the grounds of the Gallery is a permanent work by artist and poet Ian Hamilton Finlay, dedicated to the Serpentine’s former Patron Diana, Princess of Wales. The work comprises eight benches, a tree-plaque, and a carved stone circle at the Gallery’s entrance.

In 2012, coinciding with the London Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Serpentine Gallery will open its new space, theSerpentine Sackler Gallery. This innovative arts venue for the 21st century will be housed in the Grade II-listed building formerly known as The Magazine, situated in Kensington Gardens.

Please note, the Serpentine Gallery is closed to the public in the period between exhibitions, however the Bookshop remains open at all times.
